This afternoon, en route to weeding and watering, a gardener surprised a woodchuck in the lower garden. It is not clear where it had come through the fence, but everyone should check the portion of fence adjacent to their plot and make sure that it is as tightly staked as possible. We recommend that the same be done in the upper garden. Although we have not yet had any reports of critter sightings there, some young broccoli heads show signs of nibbling.
Also, please do not dump garden waste down by the lower garden because there is no easy way to retrieve it from there at this time of year.
The gardens are looking lush and wonderful and represent an impressive amount of work. Bravo to all!
