We've been waiting for a stretch of dry weather to put some finishing touches on the soil of the 200 Foot Garden. Yesterday, I was able to spread out some lime on the garden, to balance the pH a bit. Now we need to spread out the rest of the compost (since the extension isn't going to happen) and then dig it and the lime into the soil. We need to get this done soon, so that we can get the mulch on (and suppress weeds) and get the peas planted.
So, we're going to have quick workday today, from 5:30pm-7pm. I know the announcement is last minute, but if any of you have the time and want to get a little after work time in the sun and fresh air, I hope you'll stop by. (Bring a shovel if you have one.)
Thanks! I hope to see some of you there. (We can show you the seedlings in the greenhouse, too.)
