What happened at today's first workday of 2015 - March 22 :
to all who came out for today's first workday of the year. The weather
was glorious and "many hands made light work" as a most impressive wheel
barrow brigade of untiring workers distributed two huge piles of wood
chips throughout the garden. We were done in two hours time. In
addition, cardboard was put down in weedy areas before wood chips were
spread, lots of weeding was done, the peach trees were pruned, the
raspberry bushes supported, and pea pod seeds were planted. It was too
wet to do any other planting.
now it is unclear if we'll have a workday next weekend or not. It
depends if Larry is able to purchase the plants this coming week.
I'll keep you posted.
13 new households have joined the garden and we have a new high of 62 household memberships this year.
when you realize we started with 24 households in 2011. And yes, there
is still a wait list. It's down to 6 households at the moment.
