Great day on Saturday April 23. Weather was warm. The wind behaved itself. The rain stayed away.
And, many RV Area Community Gardeners, returning and new, and friends showed up to get the Gardens ready for the coming season.
Several dump runs for garden garbage. Mulching rhubarb. Cleaning up tape, cardboard, and stuff that blew in over the winter.
Pruned shrubs, dug shrubs, weeded berries, painted stakes for the plant sale.
Mulching and cleaning nursery beds, raking dirt on to the irrigation lines
AND, then there was the Busy Bees Garden.
What fun these youngsters had getting the new raised beds ready for their season and the parents enjoyed it too. Next time they are all together is the Meet and Greet on May 15 at 3:30. It will be fun to have 28 youngsters ages 3 through Grade 4 in the Busy Bees Garden this summer, planting and learning, and playing, and creating. We will also have at least 5 Junior Gardeners ages Grade 5 through Grade 12. Busy summer ahead.
It was so good to see people that we haven't seen since last fall and to meet new friends.
The next big gathering of Gardeners is Orientation on May 1. Looking forward to meeting all the new folks at 1:30 and seeing all the returning Gardeners at 2:15. The street will be even more full that afternoon.
