Hello Farmers!

One last reminder about this Saturday morning’s weeding party – just in case I missed anyone with my previous email. If you have a free couple of hours, come join Darrel in the garden and whack a weed or two!

I surely will miss joining the group. The other job out there is in the orchard – thinning the fruit. The tiny apples and pears should be snipped to every 3 or 4 inches apart.

Have fun out there!

And enjoy some of the first harvests: spinach, lettuce, parsley. Even beet tops if you enjoy thinning the beets. They are tiny and delicious.

Hello intrepid gardeners!

We have a garden, wahoooo!! Thank you, Peter for helping me get all the tomatoes, peppers and egg plants nestled into the dirt! It is all beautiful and seeded and planted!! Dario has a few pumpkin hills left to go, and I still have to hoe some corn and beans. I thought you would all enjoy one photo of the pristine earth. I am sure the plants are happy for the rain today. I wanted you all to know the $$ you spent – every one – is in the ground. Good investment. 😊

So now we water and wait and weed. The 3 “W’s” of summer!

Weeding dates are as follows: June 3, June 24, July 8 and August 12. Darrel is in charge June 3 (very light weeding) and June 24. We will both be here for weeding and potluck on July 8 and August 12. The harvest right now is parsley and rhubarb. 😉 Strawberries are popping up all over in the barrels! And it won’t be long – a couple of weeks or so – for our radishes, spinach, lettuce crops to be just big enough to munch.

All our best,

Suzannamaria and Dario

To all my lovely gardener enthusiasts,

Planting commences tomorrow! I know – very short notice, but this is somewhat extraordinary circumstances this year, so I beg forgiveness. From 12 pm to 5 or 6pm or so, I will be out there in the garden planting all the tomatoes and peppers and eggplants and seeds. If you have time, come on over and join in for a bit. This is the fun work. The earth is tilled and ready to go!

Thanks to Rachel, Obeus and Patrick, the boxes were planted a couple weeks ago, and all those plant babies are popping up (peas, carrots, beets, radishes, lettuce, kale) and I used eggshells to persuade the slugs to avoid the tender shoots, and lots of reflective tape to scare away those greedy birds. The starts look good.

Weeding commences whenever you have time to pull a few. I know weekends are best for most of you.
June 3 and June 24 are open – Darrel will be around for weeding support. I will be at work minding the human babies!
We will not be weeding June 17, as we have a giant sandcastle to build with the grandkids. 😊

July 8 and August 12 will be big weeding/gardening dates with pot lucks at the noonish hour.

I will keep all posted when there is harvest. Right now you can take home rhubarb! We also have a long row of parsley that overwintered nicely.

Take care,

Ok garden crew -
Due to events beyond control, we are scheduling a new planting day. I actually caught Darrel out weeding in prep!! Of course he believes in power tools and tractors for all jobs – I’ll let you use your imagination…

Planting date: May 17th Wednesday

Hope to see some of you there. I know it’s a weekday, but weekends are booked, so I’m really sorry about that.
Take care all and hope you’ve enjoyed some of this sunshine. I know our bees have!

Suzannamaria and Dario
