The in-ground plots have been staked and everyone has been assigned a bed. I can’t begin to tell you how good that feels.
It might not be exactly what the founding fathers meant by life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness but it makes me really, really happy to know each and everyone of us can get our plants in now.
The irrigation water is on and tomorrow I will bring hoses and watering wands to the garden. FYI: The irrigation water is from a well and meant for the plants. Humans should drink from the city water spigot in the family barn or the spring water in the refrigerator in the garage near the house.
We had lots of activity in the gardens this morning. Some came just to check if any of their seeds sprouted, others to transplant and still others were planting seeds like our young gardeners pictured here.
Tom and Jim installed some lengths of this black plastic edging to temporarily hold the gravel and stone dust in place for this season but we need more. Does anyone have any of this edging at home that they wouldn’t mind donating?
It’s the sort of thing that sometimes ends up in a garage unused.
If you have it, and you would like to donate it, bring it when you come next. Thanks.
Tomorrow I will be in the garden in the morning starting at 8 a.m. I hope to see you there.
