Let the Gardening Begin!

DSCN9346DSCN9347

Do you remember how glorious the entryway garden looked last year? And the year before? In the photo on the left you see Liz Bickel and Cherry Angell, two of our behind-the-scenes gardeners, who have already set to work weeding and edging the garden. And on the right, is Margery Albright, one of our most enthusiastic gardeners, who has already planted nasturtiums and was digging in a bit of organic fertilizer in anticipation of tonight’s rain.

What else might one plant on the cusp of May? Seeds of spinach, peas, carrots, rutabagas, turnips, swiss chard, lettuce, and beets can be planted now. One can see garlic, rhubarb, and chives up in some raised beds – the gardening season has begun!
