Entry #14 Winter Maintenence and 2018

As some of you may know, I had arranged to get soil delivered to my school for the next growing season.  However, after further consideration, and the quotes for how much it would be, I decided against  getting the soil. Also, I had to winterize the garden. So I talked to my mentor Mr. Dave Carswell. He talked about different things like companion planting, which I talked about in previous blogs, but he also mentioned something called a winter blanket. A winter blanket is a cover that you put on in the night and take off during the day. It is used to protect plants from snowfall, and keeps the heat in. I have made it so I roll it up, and its attached with clamps (Thanks Dad!).

Now, earlier I was talking about cancelling the soil delivery. Part of the reason for this is that I did not know if the soil we all ready had was not sufficient. Subsequently, I took pH and Temperature (Farenheit) measurements. Here are the results:

Planter 1A 2A 3A 4A 1B 2B 3B 4B Planter: 1A 2A 3A 4A 1B 2B 3B 4B
Date: pH Date: Temparature (Farenheit)
Dec 31-6 8 7 8 7 8 7 8 8 Dec 31-6 37 40 30 45 35 30 40 40

Have a great 2018! I will be continuing to update it every week
