On Sunday, May 15th, garden members met up at the garden to plant and socialize. The day was overcast and a little cool but provided some relief from the very hot weather we have recently had. A few seeds went in, along with veggie starts, compost and faith. We enjoyed a perfect little potluck dinner party under the 'tent' and raised a glass to successful gardening in 2016. I forgot to take pictures, but went over today to admire the garden and everyone's work.
Fern & Sheila have a luscious layer of soil in now, just waiting to embrace some seeds.
Our strawberry 'field' - lots of berries coming.
The herb garden is growing strong.
Juanita's spuds are happy in their snug corner of straw.
Spaghetti Squash protected from those pesky crows.
The bunches of chives throughout the garden are so pretty.
The bees are all over the kale flowers.
Things are heating up in the greenhouse (around 93.5 degrees) and the tomatoes are lovin it.
Thank you to the anonymous gardener who weed whacked all around the beds! And to Juanita who top-dressed the rose garden with mulch. Members make our community garden great.
