I've been quiet, but that's because I've been thinking....

We had a truly exciting and fabulous "ribbon cutting" in the garden on April 13th, with Mayor Bosse, Vice-Mayor Gold and Council Member Brien attending, I have attached photos below of the day. My niece Charlotte sold much of my candy and preserves, Armstrong Garden Center was there in force, conducting a plant class and a sale, and Whole Foods Market was very much on hand with lots of free food and samples. Thank you all for your unbelievable support.

And now on to the season. Unfortunately the squirrels are not honoring our gorgeous new fence, so I have been researching solutions. Starting May 10th, Troop 110 will be in the garden constructing covers for the beds. I have also started planting garlic cloves all along the borders of the beds. I am very determined to beat these adversaries.... I have purchased some mint plants which I'm going to plant right near our little fruit trees and vines. Squirrels hate garlic and mint.

This coming Saturday, April 26th, I will be in the garden by 10 a.m. Skip Zelenka and Craig Davis are building a prototype bed cover so that the scouts will have something to work off of. Lisa Davis and I will continue with the garlic and mint project, with the help of at least one service-learner. Please join us. Eagle candidates Max and Sam will be up figuring out their projects.
