Community Garden Blooms

The Community Garden at Pinecrest has never been so busy and full of plants and flowers. There was asparagus in the spring, then came the raspberries and strawberries, then lettuce, kale, basil, peppers, zucchini and now tomatoes galore! The Garden has experienced a a phoenix effect do to one of the Garden Club members, who put in a little extra time in the spring to make sure the raised beds were ready for potential planters to add soil and plant. Thanks to her, the timed watering system worked like clock-work and the inviting plots were snapped up in a hurry by several site-holders. There is a new sign above the garden door to help folks identify where it is (this is not to be confused with the fabulous Mt Chick-a-dee Farm which is 100 times bigger and privately operated by Miss Jill & company). All siteholders are welcome to participate in the garden on a first come first serve basis. For more information on how and when you came help, keep an eye on the bulletin board in the Club House in the Garden Club section!

PS: There is a new compose pile being started up by the Garden, look for the sign and help us improve the soil for next season!
