Sunday Details and Reminder: May Garden Wednesdays Starts Soon!

Thanks to the families who helped water and transplant our new herbs and flowers. Gardening work is much easier when so many pitch in!

Forecasts for Sunday are all over the place.  We’ll tentatively plan to garden outside from 12:15pm to 1:15pm, but if it’s raining we may postpone until later, around 4 pm. Let’s hope for sunshine!

Reminder: May Wednesday Gardening Days starts this coming week.  On Wednesday May 1st we will give watering demos and help new gardeners figure out if and when the plants they started from seed are ready for transplant.  Mark your calendars to stop by the garden Wednesday May 1st (and/or 8th, 15th, 22nd) between 6pm and 7pm.  Thx.img_7598 (2)

Despite the wind, we will be outside from 10:30am to 11:30am this morning.  Besides watering, kids will have a chance to see the tendrils on the snap pea plants. Looks like they are ready for trellising. (Photo below shows tendril grabbing supports in 2012. Credit: Ansley Samson)
