Fabulous Work Day Today

Thanks to all who came out for the work day today.

It was the perfect weather — not too hot, not too cold, with a hint of rain at the end — and the garden is in its full summer beauty.

Mowing was hampered a little by the unused hay bales that dot the path, and the thistles are troublesome (there will be more about those two things coming to your inboxes soon, gardeners), but here was a nice surprise… Remember the Seeding Starting Workshop given by our own Monica J. at the Sequoya Library in March?

A tomato and a pepper, grown from seed started at the workshop, are flourishing in one of our gardener’s plots! Good work, Marsha!

Hay there

Many thanks to Nathan, Tyler, Doug and Monica for helping out with our hay delivery.

Thanks to those folks, we have hay bales set next to our plots for the season.

Gardeners, regarding the hay, please remember 2 things:

  • Remove the twine and dispose of properly (there is a waste bag in the shed)
  • Do not put extra hay in the compost bins.. we’ll find a place for leftover hay that others can use –> more on that soon
