What I've Been Up To!
Eight years ago, I signed up for a Community Garden Plot. There aren't many plots in our small community.
Last week the call came from the Borough office. "You have been assigned Plot 9A", I was told. I went right over and took a look. And here's what I found.
My garden plot, 25' by 50'. My work was laid out for me!
I started clearing. Pulled all the weeds by hand. Dug up as much of the soil as I could. The previous gardener left a wheelbarrow behind.
She also left a hose. And the plot is fenced. I found some stakes and tomato cages, too. And some potatoes. Mister tilled it up for me.
I transplanted some day lilies and spiderwort in front of the plot. And mulched it with free mulch, hauled in my trusty wheelbarrow.
I've ordered a scoop of free compost.
What a transformation! Welcome, Spring!
