Gardener Story: Eddy Hogan
Some crops we’ve added include spaghetti squash, celery (not successful so far, still working on it), broccoli, cabbage, and scallions. We’ve also added new varieties of lettuce (wonderful gourmet mix), summer squash, and tomatoes. We’ve also learned new strategies for organic pest and disease control (example: organic fungicide), organic fertilizers (more and more effective than just the compost we’ve always used), and better crop rotation.
The equipment from BIU has greatly improved our practices—metal T-posts, plastic trellis, string, zip ties, and the fabulous triangular hoe. Our garden is neater, cleaner, and much more productive.
