Sunburned and a little fatigued, our first planting is finished! B-2 at the Cordata Community Gardens is now a real garden. Whew!
The B-2 garden plan.
Efficient square foot gardening.
B-2 finished!
Cauliflowers on one end.
Broccoli on the other.
A leak was discovered in our waterline yesterday so our water service has been temporarily shut off. This afternoon seemed a safe time to plant as beginning tomorrow, a few days of rain has been predicted. Plus, today being Mother's Day, it seemd a most appropriate opportunity for me to let Mother Nature take care of the watering!
I think we need a rain barrel or two at the gardens. One on each side of the garden shed might be perfect. This afternoon I met with the WSU Master Recycler that has volunteered to help us build our compost system at the gardens. And, I know several WSU Beach Watcher voluneers that have mentioned an interest in getting together for a rain barrel building workshop - that Master Recycler, a fellow Beach Watcher as well. Perhaps we could have that rain barrel building session right there at our gardens! After all, every gallon counts!

  1. Hi, Rose. Thank you so much for doing this for me. Its going to be fun to see everything grow into lots of edible veggies. Didn't have to do much of a rain dance - looks like we are going to get plenty. You are very sweet for doing this and I really appreciate it. Mike.
