Garden needs

Hi garden friends,

 The cucumbers, squash, peas, beans and peppers are producing like crazy.  We’ve been picking so many cucumbers you wouldn’t believe it!  The tomatoes are starting to come in too.  We have a lot to harvest each workday!  Here’s some things the garden needs:

 YOU – we’d love to see you and many hands make light work.  We have workdays on Thursday evenings now too!  We can especially use more help those nights.

 Umbrella Stand – Thanks to our intrepid yard-saler, Sandra, we now have two umbrellas, but we need one more stand so we can shade both harvest tables.

 Lumber – If you have any scrap lumber or other items (something that doesn’t hold water or stay damp) that we can put under the melons to keep insects, critters and belly rot away, please bring them. 

 Plastic grocery bags – I hesitate to write this for the inundation that will occur, but we are getting a little low. Please only bring whole, clean, dry grocery bags (not newspaper or produce bags).  I will recycle any you bring once we hit our maximum.

 Thanks to all and we hope to see you soon!

    Hello, I have been trying to source good diverse compost, or diverse things to compost but am having a hard time since most for sale is leave and woodchip compost. I’ve seen that your compost is packed with different fruits, veggies, and greens. Is there a way I could purchase just a bucket or two of compost. I’d also be happy to pay the yearly fee and volunteer like normal, I’m just afraid of a lot of people.

    1. Hi Nolan, we do depend heavily on our compost to feed the soil. We are usually “scraping the bottom of the barrel” despite the many donations from garden members and local businesses. We have purchased lovely compost from Brooks Contractors over the years. We get a truck load at a time, but they now sell it by the bag at several local retailers. Here’s the link to their site:
      Hope this helps!
