It’s time. Tomorrow we’ll start doing a big garden clean up, pulling out most of the tomatoes (we can still let the green ones ripen off the vine!), and replanting the greenhouse beds with hardy winter greens. Afterwards there’ll be another VOLUNTEER LUNCH at NOON, complete with a big, beautiful garden salad and other goodies. Come on by! P.S.- Have you seen our spiffy new worm bin?? This isn’t it, but it looks exactly like this one and was installed during last week’s vermiculture workshop presented by Jefferson County Public Works and WSU Master Gardeners. We can’t wait to start some serious composting!

Greenhouse Raising, Chapter 1:

In the beginning, there was gravel and dirt….

Then we dug holes, poured cement, and set posts:

Meeting of the minds, coming up with the afternoon game plan:

Hoops and purlins go up!

Day 2: moving dirt, making beds, building doors.

THANK YOU THANK YOU to the very skilled and gung-ho volunteers that came out for the raising! As you can see, we’ve still gotta get the plastic up–so stay tuned, there’s more raising on the way!


Now we just need to spread it…before this Saturday…

Thanks to Jess Norton of Wildflower Landscaping and Shold Excavating Inc., we’ve now got a snazzy drainage set- up and a BUNCH of gravel for the greenhouse floor. Bring shovels and rakes if you’ve got time this week to stop by and help spread it! The sooner the better! I’ll be out there this later afternoon, as well as Thursday morning (rain or shine) 11am. Come break a sweat!
