|Graffiti be gone!|
Assess inventory: gloves, tools, drinks, burlap weed cloth. Luckily we're full up on gloves, but tools, drinks and burlap cloth need restocking. Trip to Center Hardware check.....
Survey the gardens: Pathways, Trash, State of Compost, Check the various planting beds for looming big projects. As I wander around observing I make a list I'll prioritize later based on how many volunteer arrive on Saturday.
Talk with lovely neighbors and snuggle their dogs: OK, and I write this with a big smile on my face, because basically every time I'm getting some work done at either garden I run into a handful of absolutely lovely neighbors out for a walk with their friends/kids/dogs. This weekend was no exception. It may slow down the garden chores, but besides a love of gardening I really enjoy the community created around the gardens.
I hope that you get just as much (or more!) enjoyment our of the gardens, and can join us at our volunteer workday.
