Finally Spring (sort of): The 2015 Season Begins!

What happened at today's first workday of 2015 - March 22 :

Thanks 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.

Right 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.
Amazing 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.
