JUNE WORK DAY Our next work day is coming up – June 18th. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend. This is a great way to get in your volunteer hours and to meet your fellow gardeners.
We’ve got Bokashi!!!
The first barrel of bokashi was processed last week and new barrels will be processed weekly on Saturday mornings. Thanks to all who turned out to help. The green barrel is now full of bokashi tea to use in your gardens.
Use the bokashi to fertilize your plants. For new plants, in a watering can, dilute a couple of cups of bokashi tea with water and use around plants to add nutrients back into the soil. As the plants mature, the bokashi tea can be used at full strength.
DIATOMACEOUS EARTH AVAILABLE There is a large bag of Diatomaceous Earth in the tool shed. If you’re seeing pinholes in your plants, particularly tomatoes, potatoes, peppers and eggplant, you likely have flea beetles that will kill a plant if left unattended. A light sprinkling of DE will help keep them at bay. Please feel free to use it but make sure it gets back into the shed for everyone else to use.
DE is not effective once wet, so make sure your plants are dry before applying, and you might need to reapply if it rains.
FREE PLANTS If you see plants on the green picnic table or next to the bench under the linden tree at the front, they are free for the taking! Often gardeners have extras or plants are donated. If you see some, take some. If you have some, leave some. (And if you see some that look dry, please water them).
