First Work Day

Yesterday was our first official work day in the gardens. We haven't planted any new seeds or plants yet, but spent the day cleaning up all the perennials and getting the sites ready for spring.

It is always exciting to begin the garden work each year, and this year is easier in so many ways. Once a garden is established and a lot of the heavy labor is taken care if it becomes more of a joy to be able to maintain what is there.

Many of the garden members have started seedlings inside this year, and will have a very good supply of tomato plants, peppers and herbs ready to transplant as it gets warmer. There is a lot of green popping up now, such a great harbinger of spring, that it's hard to hold back from digging in right now.
We look forward to a good, long growing season and the return of fresh veggies!
Stay tuned for more frequent updates and news on our new garden soon.
