Kaily's Garden




Intern Profile 

Two of my personal goals for working at the Dallas Youth Garden this summer are: to learn how to maintain a garden well and how to get the most produce.  

Two things I hope to learn for working at the Dallas Youth Garden are: get the best product I can and largest. and how to keep weeds at bey 

I think my biggest challenge will be: having the garden produce and keep bugs away  

My favorite vegetable is: pumpkin 

My least favorite garden task  is: weeding  
My most favorite garden task  is: harvesting 

I think a leader is:  someone you can look up to and cares about everyone's opinion.

My worst leadership skill or trait is: I tend to be stobern 
My best leadership skill or trait is: I like to hear everyone's opinion on big decisions or suggestions 

Garden Plan:

Rows of vegetables planted: 17

Number of different kinds of vegetables planted: 12

My garden did or did/not match my plan and why: it did not match because we had no sweet peppers left.

My favorite vegetable to plant was: hot peppers
