Halloween in the Garden

Hey Green Thumber’s

It has been a great week of weather, some rain, some sun, and seeds are in the ground!  On Sunday thanks to Stephanie Gentile, Katie Campbell, Mairi Miller, and others, the community plots have been planted with fava beans, garlic chives, peas, and leeks.

Also, thanks to the stupendous efforts of Matt Shipley, the keyhole ring plot in the back has been reworked and has transplants of broccoli, lettuce, and some garlic!  We also successfully sifted and used compost from our very own garden.

In other news, I had a great friend from Oregon who is a master gardener come and check out the garden.  He gave us some excellent garlic cloves to plant, reworked our worm boxes, and began to clear space for our native plant garden.

Don’t forget to get your tickets for the Chili Cook Off at Samson today and tomorrow for the party in the garden on Friday from 5-7 PM.  Next week, we will begin to look at how to establish our native plant garden as well as put some new starts to seed.  Come out on Sunday for a relaxing and enjoyable gardening day.

Till next week,

Trent and Kayla
