With freezing temps this morning, a hardy group of Master Gardeners gathered to give the Teaching Garden a blanket of compost to keep the lawn walking areas snug and strong enough to endure the coming winter months. Many (Leslie, Alan, Bob and Joe) manned the wheelbarrows to load up and deliver to . . . . .
the walkways (Thomas, Cheryl and Bob) . . . . .
where Spencer, Amye, Jean and Harriet quickly worked it into the turf.
This huge effort was completed shortly after 11:00am. The temps had climbed from freezing to over 60 degrees.
It’s also important to remember to keep spraying Bobbex for deer control as Ruth is seen doing.
This blogger’s new favorite bush is the Sweet Pepperbush that has been included in several issues over the course of the 2016 season.
you can enjoy it all season long.
Today’s issue will be this blogger’s final publication and we are searching for replacements. You don’t need a fancy camera because many photos seen here have been taken by cell phones; we’re looking for Master Gardeners who love the Teaching Garden, and like to chat with others. The purpose of this blog is to deliver to the public the best of our wonderful resource which is MGPW.
If you think you’d like to give it a try, send me your questions in an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will get right back to you. Mentoring available while you’re learning!
