Work Day in the Garden - From princess Jane

To All Gardeners:

We are having another work day. If you missed the last one you still have an opportunity to work putting things right for the end of the year. The day is Thursday Oct 13 and the time is 9:00. You can bring a lunch and we will all eat together. 

I am including the last e mail from Reggie because it was so entertaining. 

hey everyone,
it's that time again. garden clean up in preparation for fall cover crop. this is the premier social event of the year. this years games include speed tomato cage cleaning, three legged irrigation pipe carry, and that old staple at all good clean up parties; "organize all the crap that was randomly tossed into the garden shed all summer". prizes will include damaged, unripe tomatoes that are too bad to make the grade at the food pantry, an old boot from one of the scarecrows that got tilled up last fall and just discovered in the compost pile, and best of all an eighty pound bag of hardened concrete that didn't work as part of the damn in the creek. in the spirit of inclusion even non-winners "i.e. losers" will be given their choice of either a Kudzu root to transplant in their personal garden, or a packet of seeds from everyone's favorite invasive," thorny amaranth."
so come on out around 9am Thursday.  we should be done soon after lunch. but just in case we aren't bring a sandwich or some snacks and we'll commune just east of the porta potty at the enchanted garden shed shaded picnic area. can't wait to see u all. ur deevoted servant. his immaculacy and highest of the subaverage reginaldo.


  1. Sorry to miss being with you all. I will be at Amicalola falls with the Master Naturalist's Class. They are not royalty, but I am still subjected!
    have fun! zora

  2. The weather is a little iffy tomorrow, but Reggie says we should still plan on going to the garden, and hope for the best. Sheila

  3. For any of you who don't live near the garden - it is pouring rain out here right now! Not sure if the workday will still happen.
