Fall Garden Meetup!

I’d love to get together again! I got some good feedback on the best times to get together and it seems like the weekends might be best. How does Saturday, Nov. 2 work out for everyone?

It was fun to meet everyone and socialize, so let’s do it again. And this time, I’m going to sneak in a small agenda too!

  • Winter plot makeovers: I know a lot of people need more dirt, new dirt, compost and all sorts of things to get their plots ready for next year. I’d like to organize this and see if we can either get dirt and compost dropped off, or get some volunteers together to pick it up. I know one of the members said he has access to all of the horse manure we could use, we just need to rent a truck and do the work.
  • Seed exchange: The seed catalogues start coming around the Holidays, and most seed packets have 50+ seeds in them. I don’t know about you, but I don’t need that many. I’d love to organize some group seed sharing :)
  • Soil testing: I’ve gotten my soil tested professionally a couple times in the past and it’s incredibly helpful. I want to share that information with everyone and find out who’s interested in a test this year. We get a group discount which ends up being $17 per person for the basic test for nutrients and organic matter. There’s a more extensive test you can order as well if you’re trying to diagnose a problem.

Let me know if you can make it. If you can’t let me know what general days/times work for you. And if you have anything to add to the agenda, let me know!
