Upcoming Work Days

Next week the garden work days will be:

Sunday, Sept. 4, 8:00 to noon:  Want to actually experience some labor on Labor Day weekend?  Come on by and help with thinning and transplanting and planting arugula, mustard, collards, chard, lettuce, and dill.  Of course we'll also do some weeding as well.

Tuesday, Sept. 6, 8:30 to 10:30:  We'll be weeding and feeding our baby apple tree and raspberries staking and weeding the tomatoes and green beans, weeding and feeding the strawberries, prepping a bed for the grain crops that 3rd grade will be planting, and pulling out the early tomatoes.

Thursday, Sept. 8, 10 to 1:00:  We'll add another layer to the compost pile, plant more carrots, beets and radishes, spread some straw around the base of the root bed, weed the sweet potatoes if they need it, and work on the fence.

As always, you are welcome to come for as little or as much time as you wish on work days.  Hope to see you there and many thanks to those who have come in the past!

My camera doesn't really do it justice, but here is a picture of a butterfly I found in the flower and herb bed.  I didn't realize until after I had taken the picture that the yellow thing is actually a crab spider feasting on a very gourmet meal!
