Archive for November, 2010

This Saturday, Nov. 20, is our final garden clean-up for the year. We will be picking up and disposing of materials left in the garden, broadcasting winter wheat for a cover crop, and top dressing with worm castings.

We had fun in the chilly rain last Saturday. Thanks to all the hardy gardeners who showed up to pull out dead plants. Thanks also to Nathan Moomaw who brought the pop-up tent from Gardener’s Market so we had a dry place to set up our food. And what food! Thanks to Tess Kenney and her friends from Heartlove Place who brought us the pot of chile! That was welcome and warming!

So here we go – one last push for the year. Also, if you have fall crops like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale or cabbage, get out and harvest! That beautiful green stuff is as its best right now. Enjoy!

We have garden clean-ups scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 13 and next Saturday, Nov. 20. The forecast is for showers tomorrow. The plan is to go out and try to at least get the dead plants out of the garden, then do top-dressing and winter wheat on Nov. 20.

Let’s get out there tomorrow and see what we can get done before we get rained out. See you then!

Mark your calendars! Let’s plan some big garden clean ups for a couple of Saturdays in November!

We have a good “to-do” list for our clean up days. Here’s what’s on the list as we’re wrapping up for the winter:
> Remove all dead plants and put refuse on the compost pile along the west edge of the park.
> Top dress with organic fertilizer (will be provided).
> Plant winter “cover crop” of winter wheat (seed will be provided).
> Plant next year’s “wall of sunflowers” in our compost pile (seed will be provided).
> General clean-up of garden stuff, so everything’s neat for the winter and next spring.
> Take any refuse from garden to the dump – we could use a pick-up truck if anyone is willing to help out with that!
> IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER: PLEASE GET OUT TO THE GARDEN AND HARVEST YOUR FALL CROPS! WE WILL BE REMOVING PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING AT THE CLEAN-UPS!

Let’s plan to get together the second and/or third weekend in November, and get our clean-up done!

Just a note – we want to thank all the folks who came and helped with our October 10 clean-up. Special thanks to our new friends from Crossroads Presbyterian Church in Mequon who helped so much!
