Despite some setbacks last weekend, we have sorted out our issues with accessing the greenhouse. There are some concerns with the door frame shifting due to the greenhouse structure doing its typical settling with the spring thaw, but hope to address them on Saturday. There is still a lot of work to be done in the greenhouse before we open. If you’re able, we will be meeting for another work party on Saturday, June 1 at 12:00 noon to complete a number of tasks:

  • Planning the greenhouse layout for planting
  • Potentially painting the cold frames and shed
  • Converting a row of bins to a new bed
  • Mixing last year’s soil with our new compost
  • Wetting the soil and preparing for seeds
  • Planting some viable seeds to get some growth started!

Painting will be weather permitting and dependent upon acquiring the required paint before the weekend. If you have painting supplies (brushes, rollers, trays, etc.), we would be happy to have you bring them.

Please feel free to print out our greenhouse layout template in preparation for this weekend.

Finally we are hoping to start collecting this year’s fees. We will have new membership forms on the website and at the greenhouse this weekend if you are interested in growing with us this year. Hope to see you there!

Thanks to those of you who came out this past weekend to attempt to get some work done!
