The plot thickens…

Once again another beautiful evening in the garden! Our regular weekly work session on the farm portion of  the garden  ‘produced’ four new beds, mounds of squash and zucchini , weeding, watering and lots of seeding!

As well it was a delightful surprise to open up the shed and see the garden gnomes had tidied and organized. Who knew we had that much space. We can now enter and exit without having to back out! Thank you very much folks. We are most grateful to have these tasks that   “need-to-be-taken-care of “- but never make it to the priority list. It makes such a difference.

We also have a few new plot holders come out last night.  A very hearty welcome to all of you!

Our next work session is Sunday and we can really use as many hands as possible to  get these transplants in their beds. They are getting very ‘weary’ in the greenhouse and need to settle into to bed now. If knees and backs are challenged there is always watering  and straw spreading too. We are also planning a potluck picnic prior to our Wednesday night work session next week.  It is a great time to get to know each other and not have to try to make a meal when you return home in the evening.  Arrive at 5:30 and then we can start to work at 6:00. Simply bring a simple dish to share along with your plate and utensils. All are invited

Here are a few photos from the evening to enjoy
