March 2018 – Garden work day

On March 17th, George Becker, Siok Hong Chen-Baden, Bruce Meltzer, Beatriz Perez-Sweeney, Jane and David Malin, and Nathan Veatch had a productive morning working in our spring gardens. Superman George Becker had previously tilled several unused rows and continued the job by tilling two abandoned large plots. One of these beds will be used as a donation bed. Several small beds are also available for adoption by new gardeners. Red and yellow cherry tomatoes, sweet peppers, zucchini and yellow squash, okra, zinnias, sunflowers and milkweed were planted. We have several beds dedicated to butterfly habitat and herbs for a farmers’ market. Three young bunnies were relocated from one of the beds to a safer area. Hopefully their mom will find them!

Siok Hong took 5 lbs of produce to the ICM Food Bank on March 19. (See the photo below.)

Garden Work Day – 1/20/18

BAUUC Community Garden News: Looking back and looking ahead: Put AUGUST 18 on your calendars for our next garden Potluck. In 2017, our garden had a good year with a great potluck in August featuring a wide variety of dishes, an interesting speaker from Urban Harvest and door prizes. Our gardeners are not only growing some nice veggies but also butterfly attractors and Stevia. Liam (Beatriz’s son) and his friend are growing herbs for a local farmer’s market. Other faithful gardeners this past year were Vera, Siok Hong, Deandra, George B, Bruce M, Mike Wehrman, Jane and David, and Nathan and Jill. Thanks to all these gardeners for all the hard work they do in their beds and our donation beds. We will be sharing our cabbage and broccoli with the ICM Food Bank in League City again this winter. We welcome newcomers, Jeramy, Michelle and their son, to our gardening family!

Saturday, Feb. 17 is our next Garden Workday. Volunteers are always welcome. Come help and learn. Check out the photos on our blog: https://bauucgarden.org or our Facebook page.
