Community Gardens Morning Update

Saratoga Bridges came and five more folks entered the Grow the Tallest Sunflower Contest.

Then volunteers arrived to install the irrigation system and to help plant.

The irrigation system took top priority this morning as it needed to be put in place before more raised beds can be installed. Paul Arnold, Bill Pitney, Rick Fenton, Jim Gold and Rich Hart were setting posts and digging a trench this morning. Thank you.Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 11.49.52 AM.png

And while they were doing that Isabelle and Emma planted another row of sunflowers. Then they planted morning glories around the stalks of the 10-day-old sunflowers that are the “walls” of our sunflower house.  Our hope is the morning glories will grow, climb the sunflowers and be trained along twine strung overhead to create a “roof” of blooms.

It’s a great day and it’s only noon!

FYI: I will be in the garden again from 3 to 5 pm today and tomorrow and again on Saturday morning from 9 to noon, weather permitting, so come and enter the contest. Seeds are free thanks to a generous donation from Sue Johnson.
