Garden,  Planting

Planting or Bust!

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 potlucks 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,
