Volunteer Days, May 13 through 19, 2012

It is field trip week for both 3rd and 9th grades this week so I will not be in the garden much at all.  If anyone is able to come out and work at any time, please do.  Everything is desperate for weeding.  Below is which beds need weeding on which days.  I'll post this list in the grey shed as well.  Please come out if you can find the time!

Monday, May 14:  B3, C1, D3 and D5 - all flower beds
Tuesday, May 15:  A1, C2, C5, and D7 - all leaf beds
Wednesday, May 16 until 4pm:  A2, A4, A5, and B5 - all fruit beds/
                                 after 5 pm:  A1, C2, C5 and D7 (leaf beds)
Thursday, May 17:  A1, C2, C5 and D7 - leaf beds again
Friday and Saturday, May 18 and 19:  A2, A4, A5, and B5 - fruit beds again.

I recommend pulling any weeds that are flowering or have gone to seed first, then pull any weeds taller than the crop plant.  Finally, pull all smaller weeds and give the surface (top inch or less) of the soil a good scraping with the hand hoe, a claw or the edge of a trowel.

Thank you in advance for anything and everything that you are able to do!
