26 May – we had a good morning doing general maintenance tasks at the garden today with eight volunteers weeding, planting more onions and mulching fruit trees while other worked at spreading wood chips on the access paths.
The next two work parties (Saturday 29 May and Wednesday 2 June) will mostly be more of the same sort of jobs – hopefully this afternoon’s forecast storms won’t damage anything. Fingers crossed firmly everyone please.
And then …
Weather permitting we expect to be doing the BIG planting session on Saturday 5 June when the seedlings of tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, assorted squash etc will be brought from the glasshouse on the Mac campus and be ready for setting out.
We could really uses all the help we can get then. If you can spare a couple of hours please come along and bring hand tools such as a trowel.
**Note: Covid-19 … although things may be relaxed on Montreal after 23 June, until then masks are mandatory at the garden.
