Gearing up for the 2016 Spring Season 1/16/2016

Greetings !  We are gearing up for the Spring 2016 planting season and there is a lot to do! There is a workday scheduled for Saturday 1/16/2016 at 9:30am.  We will be joined by special guests that day to help us prepare the garden for the spring. About 100 UU students and other volunteers will join us from Texas, Oklahoma & Louisiana as part of their annual Rally.

We are also planning on revamping the garden plots by removing the old rotting wood and replacing them with concrete blocks. This is a special project that should be completed over the next month.

If you are interested in joining us for the workday, please do! Bring gloves, something to kneel on and hand tools. We are weeding again! We’ll be starting at 9:30am on Jan 16th.

In other news, Emily will be tending to the blueberry bushes in plots 1 & 2. Blueberry bushes should be pruned each year in early spring to encourage growth. If you are interested in learning more about blueberry bush pruning, take a look at this YouTube video.

We hope to see you there!

-Emily
