A busy week began on Sunday when the garden become a Trees For Life Distribution Depot. Volunteer growers came to pick up their supplies for this seasons growing. 150 Boxes were filled with the special potting mix from the bales, their bags of gravel, fertilizer, planting tubes were sorted together with the growers seeds and paperwork. All ran smoothly.
Tuesday the Project Manager was allowed to borrow the hospital's little tractor and moved most of the manure in position next to each of the growing tank beds and filled the tank beds which are not going to be made into wicking beds.
On Friday a very pleasant day was spent weeding the windbreak, whipper snipping (brushcutting) the edges, collecting rocks, flattening the ramps to the shed and shadehouse and fixing a few other jobs before we shared a couple of homemade pizzas and coffee.
