On our first work-day of the year, about a dozen garden members and friends made quick work of spreading a hefty pile of mulch between the garden beds. Sophie, our new Garden Manager, brought delicious home-made blueberry muffins as a sweet reward. And it was t-shirt weather (for some of us!). We had a great start to the growing season.
As we moved through the garden, we noticed garlic scapes, kale, strawberries, and rhubarb growing strong, and perennial herbs just starting to wake up. It really is Spring at last!
Many thanks to everyone who participated in our work-day today, and thanks to the City Parks Department’s Forestry Division for supplying and delivering wood chips to the garden for free.
