I was able to make it out on Saturday and with the help of Evarlyne one of our new members this year, was able to complete putting the remaining two raised beds together.
We are planning a workday on Sunday, May 15th. We will need to cut the grass again, till the open area, and of course prepare your bed for planting. I have some seeds, but you may want to pick up some plants.
Regarding the open space, here’s what I’ve come up with. The open area is now 60’ x 35’. I subdivided it into 16 sections equal. That equates to a 7.5’ x 17.5’ area or (131 sq ft.). I marked every 7.5’ with a stake. Everyone having a plot can have the opportunity to claim one of those spaces or pool your spaces together with another family. I am reserving a space for Gabriel Jafari.
I wanted to reach out to everyone, and say I know we are running a little behind and everyone is very anxious to get planting, especially since we’ve been getting a lot of rain. However, the same rain is preventing us from getting the remaining boxes constructed. Since our last workday, Rich and Chris were out and managed to put two beds together, but there are still two or so left.
I’m able to make it out to the garden on Saturday around 3PM. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it out before then. If anyone can come out and help get the remaining beds together and help with tilling the open area that would be super. I will leave my cordless drill, with screws and mallet in the shed.
The next date after that for our next workday would be Sunday, May 15th 12:00PM – ?. Ideally, we should really be planting around that time.
