Hi gardeners,

We will have a socially-distanced workday in the garden on Saturday, November 28.  This will be a good opportunity to work off some of that Thanksgiving dinner!  Weather permitting, let’s start around 10:30 a.m.  Please bring a mask for any times when distancing isn’t possible.

Please have your boxes ready for an application of Milky Spore powder by then.  Milky Spore is organic germ warfare against Japanese beetle larvae, and should reduce the beetle population for the next few years.

There will likely be a few boxes that can be cleaned out.  Those of you who asked for raspberry transplants earlier in the year could go ahead and get them.

If you’re not planning to grow winter veggies, consider planting a green mulch such as clover to enrich the soil.

Wishing all a safe and happy Thanksgiving,

Brenda
