Crops are growing exceptionally well in the Garden-at-Fritz and we showed ourselves to the town at the parade this weekend …

The tomato plants need to be staked.
If you have a bit of time to spare this afternoon (24 June) we would welcome your help between 5 and 6pm.
Not a difficult job, but many hands make light work.
Last Saturday was the Town Garden Tour as part of Baie-D’Urfé Days … in preparation:
Come to the Garden at Fritz tomorrow and try your green thumbs at this year’s Pumpkin Competition.
We have fifteen seeds from a champion-winning giant pumpkin – one seed free to each of the first fifteen gardeners who claim them.
We have set a special section of the gardena side for you to go them in … at the end of summer we will determine which of you has grown the biggest and award a prize (what it will be has yet to be determined). If you can beat 2337 lbs weight you can take the world championship.
We will be there from 9am to 11am – first come, first claim on a seed.
There will plenty of jobs for volunteers to help with too – there are 75 onion sets to be planted out, we will be making bamboo tripods for the pole beans, doing some general weeding and soil prep.
If we do decide to postpone, we will post a message on our website in the news page later today – check back for an update this evening.
