April 13 - Chicago Cares Day

The morning of April 13 surprised us with a light snow. Together with a group of volunteers from Chicago Cares, we worked to wrest the garden from the begrudging grip of winter. 
Turning beds
Sieving compost

We sieved compost from our bins and worked it into the raised beds. We planted garlic, peas, and radishes and found places to lay out hay bales to dry.
The clouds broke briefly just as we finished up for the day.
