On Wednesday July 17th The
Learning Garden at SMU received some help from 14 visiting Korean students. The students helped me remove the scapes from our garlic crop to encourage the energy flow of the garlic plant downward into the bulb.
We also discovered a small maple tree growing near one of the beds. We dug it up and potted it to add to our native plant nursery.
I think it is a big leaf maple time will tell.
