Garden Project's Demonstration Square-foot Garden in Mongolia

Elder Ford set up his demonstration square-foot garden and greenhouse.  He planted radishes in the garden.  He planted other vegetables in containers in the building and will move them out to this garden when the weather warms up a little more.  Today he put plastic over the pvc supports and he said the temperature in the little greenhouse got above 90 degrees.  That's amazing for Mongolia.  The outside temperature today got up to 50 degrees, but his greenhouse was warm and toasty.  He watered his garden with buckets of warm water because he said it's better to not water the garden with cold water.   He says that this small garden can grow enough produce to supply one person's needs for a whole growing season.  Amazing! We are excited to hear more about this garden as the season progresses!

  1. I hope you don't mind that I posted a link from our preparedness blog to your blog. It is under the 'Doing Good in all Places' post. I am thinking it will be nice to show the personal receiving end of our humanitarian service.
