Entry: Sherfy Garden Week 5 Dec 8, 2016

The next time I went to the Sherfy Garden was on October 27. Today was an overcast day with a little bit of rain at times. It was starting to get chilly too, so our work for the day was to start and get the plants completely harvested, and pull the roots out of the ground. This would be done over the course of the next couple of weeks, but that first day we made a good start. I started with the tomatoes. We picked all of the rest of the tomatoes off of the plants, which was a lot. When all of the tomatoes were off, we had to pull the entire plant out from the ground from the roots, and that was my job because I was the youngest one there. I have to admit, it was a very strenuous process, but what I had to do next was even harder and more tiring. I had to pull all of the stakes out of the ground that were supporting the tomato plants. This was hard because when your fingers are cold and you are trying to pull these slabs of either metal or wood out of the ground, they tend to get stuck. In all, I went home that day exhausted with blisters on my fingers. And I was totally okay with that because putting in manual, physical labor really makes me feel like I am making a difference.
