Our first finished raised bed, Bjorn approved! We will be planting poppies in remembrance of the lives lost in The Great War (WW1). From @theamericanlegion: “After World War I, the poppy flourished in Europe. Scientists attributed the growth to soils in France and Belgium becoming enriched with lime from the rubble left by the war. From the dirt and mud grew a beautiful red poppy. The red poppy came to symbolize the blood shed during battle following the publication of the wartime poem “In Flanders Fields.” The poem was written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, M.D. while serving on the front lines”. #wavetcorps #veteransconservationcorps #ww1rememberance #flandersfields #poppies #growingveterans #zachyarrington #vfwpost9301 #americanlegion #therestorebellingham #raisedbeds #certifiedorganic
