Cheers to all,
I can almost taste the fresh, crisp lettuce in my salad on a hot summer’s night. The garden bed construction filled a large part of the work last weekend and the progress made is evident. Two beds are almost all finished and ready for planting. The great news is that the timing is just right for our unpredictable growing season.
The not so great news is that there are many more beds to build and we need your help, especially from those who would like to rent a bed this season. Please come over to the garden on Saturday &/or Sunday with your energy and any of the following tools you may have – shovel, power drill, level, wheel barrow & probably more that I don’t know about. The faster the beds are made, the faster planting can begin.
A huge thank you for all the hours of sweat, muscle and laughter that you have donated so far. After the big rains this week, the 550 ft. of swales look almost level and ready for business – a huge accomplishment.
We hope to see a great crew out on the weekend to get those beds done.
Yours in gardening,
