Garden Log, 12/2/11, 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM:
- Lance, Bruce and Armando focused on clearing pepper and egg plants from beds B2, AB7 and AB8. A total of 7.5 garden hours were worked. Harvest numbers for sweet and hot peppers, egg plant and tomatoes. Are recorded in the harvest log.
- T-tape that had been dislocated on beds K4, K5, K6 and K7 by winds averaging more than 20 mph (with gusts at LLNL at 10 meters of more than 40 mph) was re pinned and the beds and seedling flats watered.
- The deer netting placed over lettuce seedlings on be K6 is not sealing adequately along the bottom of the frames and the White Crowned sparrows are inflicting considerable damage. The birds (15 to 20) were feeding unencumbered on the newly transplanted seedlings when the gardeners arrived. They seem to prefer the more tender lettuces over the more sturdy Jerico (Romaine). They have also fed on the red varieties of mustard transplanted this week. The high velocity and gusty winds blew the lighter netting off the bed.
3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
- Bruce and Lance returned in the afternoon and removed the remainder of the pepper plants and Bruce fabricated some shorter EMT frames in order to utilize the netting more effectively and efficiently. 3.5 garden hours were worked.
