The workday theme has been Squish all Weeds. Thank you to Evan, Eric and Lori who laid out plywood around the edges of the garden on Wednesday. On Friday- thank you to Rebecca, Sija, Kristin, Eric (and his friend whose name I forgot), Joe, Marugua, Helena, Evan, Tristan, and anyone I forgot! Tristan weedwhacked some jungle-like growth in the garden, and me, Evan, and Sija untangled the gooseberry and currant bushes, and mulched them quite nicely. We laid out more plywood and tarps to kill more weedy spots, and watered and weeded the planted areas. Kristin and Helena did an amazing job cleaning the shed, and now we can find things!
Unexpected discovered goodies: quite a bit more row cover, weed suppressing cloth, and lots of string! We found a mysterious bag of natural lawn fertilizer- not sure if we are going to need it since our problem has been fighting back the grasses!
I’m still putting together that shopping list- email me at mariathecrow@ gmail.com if you have any suggestions.
hope to see you in the garden!
