Sign Up to Water!

30 Jun

4f9224a5a5b9ccda37e0b26499993fe4At long last the watering schedule is updated for 2016. Sign up online now — choose as many days as you can; the schedule gives some instructions; generally, just know that it’s better to water early or later in the day (not mid-day), just because more water will soak in.

It’s a great way to help out, and an easy commitment . . . and we have some open slots this weekend, so if you’re around for the holiday weekend, please help!

See the tiny black wiggler with a white stripe in the middle? This is probably larva from the recently spotted swallowtail, white cabbage or painted lady butterfly.

The sticks and sounds coming out of this grating suggest bird nest!

We’ve figured out where to put all the tomatoes that people brought down from our seedling planting event in February . . . and we have some pretty good ideas for the flowers. Come help us make those ideas a reality tomorrow! All welcome!
