UNSEASONABLY WET WEATHER
Did you know the average first day of 90 degree weather in Denver is June 10? We may not even make that the whole month. We’ve had more moisture and cool weather this spring than I can ever remember. PLEASE tend to your weeds before they become a problem for the whole garden. On the plus side, the “good” plants are really taking off with very little effort on our part!
Please be cognizant of the common spaces and keep hoses, tools, overflowing plants, etc out of the pathways. We certainly don’t want to cause a tripping hazard for yourself or others. Also please make sure you unhook hoses from the spigots and turn off any splitters after use so the next person doesn’t get soaked.
A reminder that a commitment of 10 hours over the season to help keep the garden running smoothly is needed. Working on your own plot and weeding the border does not count toward volunteer hours. Weeding other areas of the garden DO count. If you’re looking for things to do, the perennial area near the front by the picnic table and its associated pathways is looking ragged. Attached is a listing of hours to date. If you’ve put in hours and have not yet reported them, please see below link to do so.
