April Mulch Delivery

The April mulch delivery has arrived, please use as needed!

April Cleanup 2011

This Saturday (April 9th) from 10AM to 1PM is our first monthly clean-up of the 2011 Gardening Season! The plan for this Saturday is to focus on the common areas, both inside and outside our Gardens, the compost piles, and preparing the tools for the season.

Following the clean-up, we will have hot dogs so that everyone can get to know one another, especially our new gardeners.

IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO ATTEND, please let us know so that we can estimate how many will be joining us for lunch. Also, if you are WILLING TO BRING SOMETHING, let us know.

Our goal is to keep the general distribution of messages down to a minimum. Mass mailings are intended for sharing important information to all members, not questions or complaints. Questions can usually be answered by one of the officers. Please direct your questions, suggestions, or complaints to Mike and me or any other officer rather than the mass mailing.

Looking forward to seeing you Saturday.

Candiss & Mike

Please deposit rocks, stones, bricks and similar items on plot #69. This will keep them out of the trash cans. Plus the rocks will be available to those who have a use for them. [Marti uses rocks to hold down her landscape cloth paths. Also, flat stones make good stepping stones in a squash bed and her compost bins are made from reclaimed cinder blocks.]

Pots, Cages, Etc:

Please deposit any reusable pots, cages, stakes, etc. in Plot #72. Please also feel free to take anything you can use from the plot. This reduces the cost to your fellow gardeners and keeps usable items out of Arlington’s waste stream.

Spring Plot prep:

Please don’t throw your best soil away as you prepare to plant!

As you prepare your plot this spring, if you pull weeds instead of turning them under, please put them in one of the several common use compost piles. This is good stuff — definitely not trash.

Scott rescued a wheelbarrow full of soft green spring weeds and rich top soil from a garbage can inside our gate. This bounty is just what we need to pile on top of the hard stalks left in the compost piles from fall cleanup. The combination of the green weed tops and a little soil left on the roots will fill in the voids in the pile and speed decomposition of the harder organic material we put in the compost late last summer.

We’ll stay in good stead with the garbage man, too — they hate lugging heavy bins of rich soil-laden organic material to the land fill.

FINAL Monthly Cleanup, Sat, Nov. 6, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm + Announcements

It’s that time again. Our FINAL Monthly Cleanup is this weekend. This will be our last weekend and last month for everyone to put their plot to rest. Pathways must be cleared of weed. Tools must be properly stored in the shed and labeled with your name and plot number.

Due to Thanksgiving that is coming up in about two weeks or so, December 11 is the ABSOLUTE deadline for all plots to be left fallow.

MONTHLY CLEANUP: When: Saturday, Nov. 6
Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

It’s expected to be 50 degree, so where something warm.

As always everyone, THANK YOU for your help in the beautification of our precious URBAN OASIS.

See you Saturday!
