Lusk Garden Updates

Hello Gardeners,   Last  Wednesday was cool and cloudy, a few gardeners came and we did some weeding. And dug and potted a few plants for a plant sale.  Also placed label stakes by the perimeter  perennials .Thanks Karen for making them.  We also had a mini conference about replacing the fence around the garden. The current one is deteriorating and besides weak and falling apart, it is not keeping the rabbits out.  Our next gardening day will be next Wednesday April 13 at 10 AM.  We did not move any of the wood chips to the paths, so that will be one of the projects. As any gardener knows weeding is always something to be done.  Hope the day will be nice weather and inviting for outdoor  work    Hope to see you there.
