Seek Buried Treasure This Saturday!

Join us this Saturday, June 13th, from 9-11 am, for a treasure hunt. We will be digging up potatoes, turnips, beets, carrots, onions, and other valuables. Also, we will discuss Best Bets for growing vegetables in summer, and have seeds and transplants available for you. We will be observing all current guidelines for Covid 19, so bring your mask and keep 6+ feet apart. Feel free to bring along children and grandchildren…this is a kid friendly activity!

No Garden Workday…BUT…

We will not have a garden workday this Saturday due to Covid 19 concerns, however, we are offering two gardening opportunities.

Metal trellis and T-posts.

Dan will be at the garden at 10:30 am on Saturday morning to help those gardeners who need to put up a trellis. The garden purchased all supplies. (T-posts, wire mesh, wire). All individuals need to wear masks, gloves, and respect the social distancing guidelines of 6 feet.

In addition, we will have a “Virtual Garden Meeting” on Zoom, Saturday morning, 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Grow and Share Garden Virtual Meeting, Saturday, May 9 · 9:30–10 AM

This is an optional meeting only, we will go over gardening tips, best practices, and announcements. There will be a May newsletter copy of “Best Bets” in the shed.

Workdays Cancelled until further notice.

Due to quarantine restrictions and in an abundance of caution, our garden workdays are cancelled until we figure out a way to make sure everyone is safe. I will continue to have copies of the “Best Bets” available in the shed, and I encourage everyone to get out and garden! The fruits and vegetables are thriving, and the food banks are desperate for fresh produce. We are taking food to the Friendship house on Tuesday mornings and Metrocrest Monday thru Friday plus Saturday morning. Please text Peg Kinkade at 972-369-3266 when you leave produce in the refrigerator for delivery. Please note there is no one at the church.

We shall garden separately, so we can come together to help feed our community. Be safe!

Rain, Sleet, Snow, Nothing Stops our Gardens to Grow!

No matter what the weather…our next garden workday is this Saturday, February 8th, from 9-11am. This is the LAST meeting to claim your plot…we have a waiting list of gardeners, who are ready to claim any unassigned plots. The list of vegetables to plant grows much larger in February—-come on down to our workday to learn more. Finally, here are some great “Garden Hacks” to try! Garden Hacks

Ice, Rain, or Snow, Garden Workday is still a GO!

The forecast for our next garden workday, Saturday, January 11th from 9 to 11, is cold and windy….but we are a hardy folk, and will meet anyway. I have onion sets to give away and plant, but if it’s too cold we will meet inside instead. Remember…you get first pick of garden plots if you come to THIS workday. I already have new gardeners looking for a plot, but the “veterans” get their choice, before I open it up to the newcomers. Have faith…spring is just around the corner!

Deck the beds with trowels of compost…
