Here’s a little project that we’ve worked on at Bass River for the past few days. I was able to engage a number of different people at each step along the way from figuring out what we were working with to creating the blog post. Now I’m hoping it leafs out and starts growing!
We thought it could be
or maybe a cactus…
Then John smelled it and knew right away that it was ginger!
So we soaked it overnight..
filled the bottom of a flowerpot with stones…
and added a soil mixture of half potting soil and half vermicompost.
We dug a little hole and plunked it in!
It’s ready to grow on a bed of rocks for extra humidity and we have fresh ginger to look forward to!
