The members of SLPS met on Saturday, May 21-Monday, May 23, 2016 to plant the second Society garden over the full moon. The ground was weeded, turned, and manure was added. This year the garden doubled in size, so more work was to be done and more time given to the Earth. Thankfully the rain softened the sand and only the crab grass fought back. Monday evening, after all the hard work, the starter plants from Millcreek and Traces gardens were planted under the light of the moon.

This year the society planted: corn, okra, Japanese eggplant, red watermelon; Jack-o-lantern, Jack-be-little, and Jarrahdale pumpkins; artichoke, shallots, Walla Walla sweet yellow onion, baquieu and butter lettuce, cabbage, yellow summer squash; De Milpa, Verde, and Yellow Husk tomatillo; dill and basil; Granny Green, Zebra, and Brandywine tomatoes; Armenian cucumbers; Giant Marconi, Habanero, Tobasco, Anaheim, Anaheim Chili, Serrano, Chipotle, Pimento, Ghost, Lemon Drop, Anchio, Caribbean, Shishito, and Keystone Giant peppers. The total cost this year being $300 for the plants and supplies.

Some good insects were spotted, a few spiders egg sacks and one jumping spider. Earth worms and roly polies were plenty. A few June bug larve and lacewing flies were seen. A test of the soil revealed that the sandy earth is a neutral, neither acidic or alkaline, perfect for all types of plants!

Blessed Be the Good Earth Mother and all her fertile soil. The new society garden has been planted and blessed this past week of May 24-31, 2015. Muad’Dib, Shy Fox, Woman Between the Wolves, and the house dog Freyja worked hard over the last week to weed, turn the soil for roots, add manure, plant the crop and water the garden. “It was back breaking work. Most of it was the weeding with hoes and turning the soil with the cultivating forks, that took the whole week.” Said Shy Fox. Gwen Allen made an appearance, “my African blood was pumping strong. We were out there working like slaves! Real strong, I was feelin’ akin to the brothas and sistas from home in the Deep South workin’ the plantations!”

The planting on Sunday morning went quickly and easily after the hard work was done. It was done over night and in the early morning hours so that the society members wouldn’t be bothered by the bees. All included are: bell, Anaheim, Tabasco and jalapeno peppers, tomatoes, tomatillo, corn, oregano, cilantro, parsley, butternut squash, yellow squash, cucumbers, Georgia collard greens, cantaloupe, watermelon, a blue berry bush and a grape vine. President Muad’Dib gave a druid blessings on the land “May the fire of life Nwyfre come up at this point and give life and fertility to everything present.”
