Last night’s temperature dipped to 29 degrees, and our garden showed the impact this morning.
The icy crystals on the remaining plants and herbs reminded me of crystallized flowers that decorate cakes. It is very pretty to look at as the frost clings to the edges like lace on a party dress.
It’s time now to clear the beds, we will be sowing annual rye next week and tucking the garden in for the winter. The compost is scheduled to be delivered and the bags will be placed on gardener’s beds on Thursday.
I will be in the garden Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday mornings. If you are available to help organize the shed and a few other chores, I would appreciate the help.
We tallied the volunteer hours logged and some gardeners haven’t volunteered for the six hours of service required of every gardener, this would be a way to make up the difference. Remember, you have to have your hours in to be eligible to keep your plot for next season.
See you at the meeting tomorrow, Wednesday night, 7 p.m. at Spring Street Gallery, 110 Spring Street.
