Further Successes in the SOIL Pepper Plots!
Another great update from the SOIL Experimental Gardens at Penye. On January 8, the SOIL team came together for the second of three harvests in the Pepper Plots, and we were once again thrilled to see how successful SOIL compost was in aiding the growth of our green peppers. Our January harvest was especially fun for us, because we had some unexpected helpers! The SOIL Audit team, comprised of our auditor, our Board Treasurer, and our Treasurer’s son, took time during their visit to Port-au-Prince to dig in and get their hands dirty helping with the harvest. We love when our visitors get involved, and were honored to have the team’s help. Results from this harvest and the first harvest in December are displayed below, but don’t forget to keep checking back for news of our next and last green pepper harvest for these plots, coming up soon!
For reference, Treatment A applied 1.5lbs of compost per plant, Treatment B applied 3lbs of compost per plant, and Treatment C was a control (no compost applied).
