This Saturday Susan, Iris, Laura, Linda H, Mark P, and Gabriela met at the garden.
We were busy planting the individual plots, adding compost and watering. Mark continued to advance the relocation of the shaded beds into a sunnier spot. He transplanted the herbs that came back (sage, thyme, and oregano) to make room for the bed and kept moving soil around and leveling the ground.
We mused about what we could do in the common areas, what new flowers to plant (Gabriela is sprouting lupines and will be planting them during the week), and what perennials could be eventually added to the garden (some thoughts included kiwi and passion flower vines in the west-facing fence, containers with berries, perhaps a dwarf nut tree/bush outside the fence on Oak St?)
Gabriela also installed new signs and a trash receptacle for the compost bins (for a fuller compost update, see the next blog post below).
For this week, we agreed on the following watering schedule to make sure our seeds and transplants are continually moist:
We were all so intent on what we were doing that no photos were taken!
