Garden Planning Meeting this Monday,
6:30 pm at the library
We schedule the evening of the third Monday of each month to discuss all pertinent topics related to keeping our garden bountiful and our organization thriving. Everyone is welcome. Our September 19th meeting starts at 6:30 pm at the Seminole Heights Branch Library (SE corner of Central Avenue and Osborne). Please join us!
Garden Nannies update (“Groundbreaking News”)
A few months back, we sent out the call for “Garden Nanny” volunteers to start fall seedlings at home. Several garden members stepped up, and now results are starting to sprout. Here are some pictures of some of the things we've got growing... Jalepeno, Red Russian Kale, Orange Fantasy Chard, Fordhook Chard, Cucumbers, Romaine lettuce, Pai Tsai (like bok choy), Romanesco Broccoli, Cauliflower, Broccoli Raab, Tomatillos,and Cherry tomatoes.
Thanks to Colleen Parker Tim Baker, Ellen Leedy, and Cindy Sutherland for the photos. Cindy sent the picture of the square planting pots she folded out of newspaper... they get planted right into the ground with the seedlings where they'll compost naturally. If you want to try making some pots yourself, instructions can be found at this link.
Some planting has already begun at the garden, with lots more going in in the weeks ahead.
So lend us a hand, make some friends, and help our garden grow. Saturday mornings, 9:00 am to noon
Planting, weeding, watering, harvesting, and tending the compost and the garden worms... these are a few of the regular tasks essential to our ever-bountiful community garden.
We gather for a few hours every Saturday morning, pitching in together to keep it going and keep things growing. So please join us if you can this weekend.
Sunscreen and garden hats are recommended, and bring some water to stay hydrated.
We look forward to seeing you!
All the best,
Your friends from Seminole Heights Community Gardens
