Garden Work Day on Dec 17, 2022 at 9 AM

A big thank you to everyone who turned out and took part in the 1U Garden workday on November 19th. Lots of chores: Done!

Do you like strawberries? The lovely and generous Alison I. donated and planted a dozen strawberry plants in the wooden raised bed. Good things ahead there. She also donated and planted red-leaf romaine, spinach and collards. Check ’em out in bed No. 6.

Mary M. was there with her laptop, finishing work on a map of the beds, perma-garden and fruit trees that we’ll print out and mount on a wooden sign board, kinda like what you see at a trailhead: You are here. The blueberries and mulberries are over there. Turn right and you’ll find plum trees, banana and an elderberry shrub. 

Alison also harvested more sweet potatoes that Nicole and Ryan cleaned up and sorted. We’ll give those out in December or January.

Thanks also to Rose and Andy, who helped re-ink signs and do some touch-up painting on the picnic table. They and lots of folks pulled weeds.

Great job, everyone.

Thanks for all the effort. Hope to see you at our next workday, Saturday, Dec. 17, 2022 at 9 a.m.
