The garden is taking shape, and if you haven’t been out to work yet, you’ve got to come see how things are progressing. Come out and join us this Wednesday or Friday (April 29 and May 1). Sabrina will be there Wednesday from 1pm and I will be there around 2 until 6 and Maria will be at the garden on Friday from noon. Thanks to all of you who’ve been coming out.
Last Saturday, Alix and Raja continued working on preparing the raised beds for planting and we especially thank them for cleaning up the fencing and space beside the shed.
This past Friday, Maria, Lori, Ivan, Kristin, Tristan, Helena and I started preparing the NW section of the garden for the upcoming 3-sisters
workshop. See our events section for more info on this and other upcoming events at the garden. Also, we built two more raised beds, planted carrots and arugula, watered all the crops planted thus far, and trimmed the herbs in the herb bed to promote good, healthy growth. We were also happy to meet Mike and Claudia from Regenesis and hope that they and others from the club come out and join us in the garden regularly. There was even a break to observe Maria’s snake-handling skills!
We also noticed how well the raspberries were doing and we’ll need to weed the plots of the grass carefully avoiding the new shoots and then add compost from the pile so the raspberries will thrive this year.
Hope to see you this Wednesday or Friday. Check our events section for upcoming events and the calendar of workdays through June will be posted very soon.
