We’ve been busy in the garden! February Work Days

The February Garden Workdays were very successful!

On February 6th, Emily and her husband, Scott, refurbished plots 1 & 2 (blueberry bushes) by removing the old wood box and replacing it with concrete blocks.  It was hard work but very much worth the effort.  Special thanks to Nathan for helping them haul the blocks!

February 13th, regular monthly workday.

Thanks to twelve hard-working volunteers, six yards of soil was moved and beds were prepared for spring planting. Those determined workers were George, Nathan, Jeff, Paul, Ivar, Jane and David, Ana and Avery, Gillian and Oliver, and Emily. We really appreciate their willingness to push wheelbarrows, pull weeds and get the grass roots out before the new soil was dumped. Five beds are now ready to plant! The special engineering award goes to the Harvard-Yale team of David and Ivar for reinstalling the bean tents. All but two of the beds have been converted from wood to concrete blocks and cap blocks will be installed soon. Watch for spring flowers! Beds are still available. If you’re interested, please contact Nathan at nveatch@swbell.net.
