Saturday, April 27th in the Garden

This coming Saturday, the Girl Scouts will be in the garden. Their assignment: water the new seeds in the butterfly garden, take the extra compost up behind the rear patio area, and straighten the contents of our shed.  Could someone please also give the compost barrel a "turn"?

A reminder to everyone: please do not access other areas of the park from our garden area. This is now the time of year when the mansion is very often rented out to weddings and we don't want to interfere with that function. If you bring children or teens to work in our demonstration gardens, please maintain control of their behavior at all times: don't allow them to wander unaccompanied. If we have negative reports concerning our presence at Greystone, we will be permanently uninvited. Thanks moms and dads.

News flash: if you feel that birds are eating your seeds before germination, sprinkle some undiluted KoolAid grape flavor powder on the soil over the seeds. Birds allegedly hate the flavor so much they won't eat the seeds!! Chrissy, tell me if this works for you.

Today Chrissy, Leyhun and I installed some creative tomato trellising.
This is my source for some of the strange methods I use in the garden: Supermarket Super Gardens, by Jerry Baker. Some of our parsley is starting to come back....
