May 28 Note from Don Leaf:
Gardens Progress: Everyone I know is celebrating the arrival of some sunshine! It has finally dried enough at the Jim Goche-Friendly Grove Rd garden, for Roger Johnson to till for us. (Thanks Roger) We are weeks behind in planting there and the cabbage that was planned there is now planted at the West Side. I guess we will count our blessings for having 3 sites to work and make plan adjustments as necessary.
Thanks to Capitol Campus gardeners: We have continued to plant onions and weed. We are getting ready for squash planting and trying to keep up with the onions, leeks and root crops growing there. We do need help with the fence edges. We mulched with straw but lots of weeds have found their way through.
Notable Help Thanks! A Terrific group from Black Hills High School Honor Society put up our tee posts that hold up the top wires and enable the trellis material to be erected. Thanks BHHSHS! I drove one post for a demo and doubly thank these young strong smart people for doing this once per season task!
Thanks to everybody who supports and helps!
