    BISC 1007 Food, Nutrition, and Service

    Today, I watered the plants in the beginning and then sifted soil that had been used to grow plants, and prepared it for reuse. The used soil has to be sifted because it contains remaining plant parts in it. The plant parts need to be removed before the soil can be reused, so it is an important part of the process. It is also very time consuming!

    Today, I planted wildflower seeds! To do that, you have to put sifted soil in small plastic pots and put a pinch of wildflower seed inside it and cover it with more soil. Because these seeds are supposed to grow everywhere, there isn't a need for precision. Then I sifted soil that had been used to grow plants, and prepared it for reuse. The used soil has to be sifted because it contains remaining plant parts in it. The plant parts need to be removed before the soil can be reused, so it is an important part of the process. It is also very time consuming!

    I started with watering the plants. There were a lot of new plants brought inside due to the cold weather and the greenhouse looked very tropical!

    I weeded the area outside, of the roof. There were a lot of weed growing and that plants the real plants have to compete for nutrients and hurts their growth. Weeding is an important part of the process and has to be done regularly.

    I started by bringing the pots of plants I could carry from outside to inside the greenhouse. As the weather is expected to get cold, tropical plants (which is most of the Bell Hall's greenhouse plants) will have a hard time adjusting, so they need to be brought inside to be taken care of. I then weeded the area outside, of the roof. There were a lot of weed growing and that plants the real plants have to compete for nutrients and hurts their growth. Weeding is an important part of the process and has to be done regularly.
