Today we worked hard on transplanting many of the remaining tomato plants into pots which we then placed throughout the garden.  We also harvested the remaining carrots in bed 8 as well as the remaining beets in that same bed.  Finally, we mounded up more soil on top of the potato plants.  This is important becasue if the potatoes get too close to the surface of the soil and are exposed to sunlight, they can turn green (and become not edible).  So, mounding up the soil around the roots of the potato plants prevents this from happening.  There wasn't too much work to be done today, but we anticipate a busy summer.
