Weekend Highlights

Despite the rainy weather, many garden members were quite busy this past Saturday. The Waste-Not Expo took place from 9:30am to about 2 pm. It was a great opportunity to share our story and to reach out to the community. We especially enjoyed doing the veggie stamps and basil plantings with the kids. Special thanks to Mary Lou, Andrea, Ed, Marti, Beth, and Eli who helped prepare, set up, and run the table. Here are some pictures from the event.

That same afternoon Eli, Mary Jo, and Ed helped repair and extend the fence. I went to the garden after the Expo and boy was it muddy! We need to get some more mulch to put in the aisles. If anyone knows of a lead on good mulch, we can really use it.

Friday afternoon, I finished cultivating one of the beds and put some peas, kale and radishes in the ground. Just in time for the fence improvements! There's still lots to do. I updated the To-Do list in the shed. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need further instruction. We will set up a watering schedule at our next meeting, which is April 5th at 3pm (details to follow) We haven't needed to water much these days because of all the rain, but it will be wise to get a good system up and running before it gets hot out. Thanks to everyone who helped make this weekend a success. Don't forget to get your forms filled out and your dues in by April 5th AT THE LATEST! We have a lot of interest, and limited space, so if you don't want to miss out, get your forms to us ASAP! Email for more details.
