So Much Happened, I need 2 posts

Yesterday, April 20th, we had our Earth Day Spring Planting event in the garden, sponsored by Whole Foods and All Saints Beverly Hills. It was so great, I will do a separate blog about it in a minute.

This coming Wednesday, April 24th, I will be in the garden around 10:15 a.m. I have some fencing for the tomatoes, I need some help in erecting it without harming the young plants. I will also apply some water to the hill and to the compost. By the way, I opened our compost barrel today and it was so hot it steamed at me! This is great; it is how the microorganisms kill any pathogens. The compost will heat up to 140 degrees and then start to cool off.

I need a big container of cayenne pepper and a big jar of peppermint extract so that we can do ongoing pest repelling. Anyone? We need to get the plants big enough so we don't have to worry about them getting eaten.

See you in the garden! Barb L.
