Chloe's Garden

Intern Profile

I want to work at the garden because: I love gardening and the environment that this internship brings.

Two of my personal goals for working at the Dallas Youth Garden this summer are:

1. To not overwater my tomatoes.

2. Also to keep up with my weeding.

Two things I hope to learn from working at the Dallas Youth Garden are:

1. Learn how to grow dill

2. Learn how to grow cucumbers.

I think my biggest challenge will be: Growing cucumbers

My favorite vegetable or fruit is: peppers because they look cool.

I hope to contribute this to the garden this year: By taking initiative and asking questions when I'm confused.

June 5-11: We out down a lot of straw and are almost finished, I watered my plants as usual, and now we are picking flowers off of the tomatoes and squash

June 12-18: Weeded, thinned, and watered my garden. I specifically picked/thinned my radishes.

June 19-25: I weeded, watered, picked off the flowers of my tomato and squash, and tried to pick the radishes in my row but they ended up being full of bugs.

June 26th - July 2nd: I watered my plants, continued to weed, I picked the flowers off my squash but stopped picking the flowers off my tomatoes. I also helped put the fence up for my pole beans and I helped put bark chips down for the path.

July 3rd - 9th: I continued to water my plants, weed them, and thin them. I also stopped picking the flowers off of some of my squash, and I did a lot of close weeding on some of my more weed-infested rows.

July 10th-16th: I watered, weeded, and picked my first couple of zucchinis. I also started to weed my other rows while thinning them.

July 17th-23rd: I have weeded, I have watered, but most importantly I have picked a good amount of zucchini from my one zucchini plant that produces zucchini.
