Finishing the Fence + Weeding Weekend, July 23-24
The garden is looking great! Thanks to all who helped put in the irrigation system, the fence and the gravel parking lot. The water tank leak is fixed and everything seems to be working very well!
All that remains on the fence are two equipment gates and two people gates. Ryan Ragsdale and I were planning to work on those this weekend, and we would welcome any assistance - especially from those with fencing or building experience. We have the materials and a plan for the equipment gates, but anyone with building experience who might want to volunteer to build a people gate would be well appreciated. (Please e-mail me or call 939-2361 if interested) At the very least, we'd like to get something rough in place so the deer can't get in.
Ryan and I will be out there Sunday afternoon working on the equipment gates, starting at 1 p.m. Fortunately, the forecast is for cooler weather! Anyone available to join us is very welcome.
If Sunday doesn't work with your schedule, we would also welcome community area weeders at any time. You may have noticed that the empty plots are starting to get very weedy and tall. If you own or can beg/borrow/steal a weedeater and would be willing to put in some time, please do!
We are working with HRH on getting the sign installed and planning our open house, and the Extension Office and our local Master Gardeners are looking into offering a few educational classes before the season is over. Let Christina at Extension know if you have a special interest.
Thanks again for all your hard work, and happy gardening!!
