Hello all, We expect that this year’s gardening season will begin shortly and want to give you some information to keep in mind as you begin to prepare your garden plots.Continue reading Spring 2020 Guidelines
It’s that time again. Tomorrow, Sunday, November 13th at 9:00 am we will take down the fences, roll up the hoses and put the gardens to bed. The forecast looks reasonably warm. As you prepare your plot for next season, please remember that all debris should be deposited in the upper garden compost pile.
If you can’t make tomorrow, but have time this afternoon, please feel free to get started. The zip ties can be cut and the fence stakes can be pulled.
Please bring your work gloves and your 2017 garden payment: $40/full plot, $20/half – checks payable to Kathy Tefft.
See you tomorrow in the garden.
Thanks to all who helped take down the garden fences and get the gardens ready for winter. It was a cold morning, but we had lots of help.
A record group of gardeners turned up to take down the fence, and we completed it in a record amount of time of 45 minutes. Thanks to Kathy, Sue and William for overseeing the garden through another successful season.
Sadly, another gardening season has come to an end, and the fences have to be rolled up and carted away. This year we’ve chosen Saturday, Nov. 9 at 10:00 am, with the rain date on Sunday, the 10th for the upper and lower gardens.
This has been a super growing season, and we’ve seen lots of beautiful produce coming out of both garden gates. Hopefully, next year will be even better. We’ll probably be working on a chilly morning, so dress appropriately…maybe an extra pair of warm gloves.
Dartmouth asks that all tall stakes, upright sticks and large stalks be removed, and that plots be relatively free of weeds.
