We had a great morning at the Extension Garden on Wed. thanks to helpers Kathy Gilmore and Angela Reagan. We got all of the scheduled projects completed which were weeding, mulching the Canna, and planting some new perennials in the front of the garden. We also cut back all of the spring bulbs.
The Pansies are doing so well that we decided to leave them in the garden until next month. Our new Hosta section is also growing nicely and I got a few extra plants from the plant swap that I will be added to the garden.
Our next PED will be Wed. June 10th from 8-10 a.m. I am hoping we will see a few more volunteers to help us. Although this is a small garden, it still has to be maintained.
I am also looking for someone to help with the watering during the summer. I have someone to water on Thurs.-Fri.,but need someone on Monday or Tuesday. Everything is up there, you just have to connect the hose by the 911 center and hand water. Please e-mail me if you can help. This is a good way to get “Work hours” on your own time.
