We finally got a nice sunny day in Tahsis and the timing was perfect - there were 50 asparagus crowns to go into the
Farm to School garden.
A last minute call went out to CMESS students and a few were able to participate in the planting with Organic Master Gardener Terry.
Our resident 'Duck Lady' Juanita, suggested that if anyone had a birthday today, that would be a good way to remember the planting. Resident 'Corgi Lady' Silvie, piped up, 'why it's the Queen's 91st birthday!'
So we planted asparagus crowns on Her Majesty's birthday - and we even had a (royal) Corgi there to supervise, with Maester Percy the Spaniel as (official) Advisor.
Granger digs in.
Beneath the Holly tree, Natasha planted the primroses that were used to decorate the food table at our AGM.
The Mason Bees will enjoy these.

Sweet Percy waits for a treat
Beautiful day, thank you Terry for sharing your knowledge and thanks to the young Tahsites who came out to help. We'll remember this planting day in the years to come when the asparagus is enjoyed @ Farm to School.
