This past Wednesday, we were in the garden moistening the surface of the beds to ensure even germination of the newly planted crops. I planted a barrier of garlic all around and put out the mint hyssop seedings I grew at home over the winter. Both plant species repel mammals. I met a new garden member, Uma Yu, who will be heading up a group of interested gardeners from All Saints.
Tomorrow I will be in the garden at 10:30, watering the beds and monitoring the germination progress. At this time of the spring, we watch and wait, and try to protect the seeds from predators. I would like to construct and install a last set of 2 raised beds this summer, and will try to round up a group at our April 20th planting event.
Make sure you stop by and visit me on Sunday, April 14th, Earth Day, I will be with Ellen Prager at the Whole Foods Booth. Jessica Emmerson is having a nice big poster made with photos from the garden, and I will have a bottle of our own worm tea to talk about. See you in the garden! Barb Linder
