Re: [TahlequahCommunityGarden] Work day fun
- Good morning! It is amazing how much progress has been made at the garden over the course of the two work days. There is (of course) still much that needs work, but oh my goodness! It looks great!I have some space for the flats, Denise. Just give me a call when you're ready and I can meet you for the hand-off. 918 207-6379.Sue

Subject: [TahlequahCommunityGarden] Work day fun
Date: Monday, February 28, 2011, 9:32 AMThe second work day was lots of fun and we accomplished so much. The fence was more labor intensive than i expected to get installed, but with cooperation and hard work we got it done and it looks great! The children also worked hard and are so delightful to have around and so helpful.
A big thanks to Clear Creek Seeds who were on-site with all their seed varieties. If you missed them, they have a website http://www.clearcreekseeds.com/
I rescued a lot of strawberry plants from the north end walkways, and temporarily moved them to my first row (just south of Sue's area). There are more of them than I really have space for, so if anyone wants some, please feel free to take some. I just didnt want them to get weeded out.
I checked some of my herb growing areas at home and found that the comfrey is starting to send up shoots, and my fennel is also already putting up fronds, so I will be moving some of each to the shared herb bed this week. (Tami - in looking at my fennel, the way it is coming up, I am very hopeful about getting a nice start of it without disturbing the original). My garlic chives are also up and ready for use and I have garlic cloves that are ready for planting. Tami has done such a great job on the herb bed plan, and left a copy of this in the shed, so I will note on there what has been planted.
I have lots of seed, many of which need to be started in flats or small pots. I have lots of flats and pots but little room inside to start them. If anyone has space to house the flats, I would be glad to get them all ready, so they would just need warmth, light and water.
Thanks to everyone for making this wonderful cooperative opportunity available.

I will attempt to get the new and hopefully final plan to the shed ASAP.It came to my attention that the light requirements for the strawberries might be compromised if we placed them in the center of the bed like I originally suggested. So if it is of no inconvenience, I altered the plan some to accommodate strawberries at the far East end of the first bed.Also I removed the Comfrey and horseradish from the herb bed, realizing that they would do better elsewhere. Since Horseradish is a good companion for fruit (preventing rust) and comfrey (good for mulch) I suggest locating them at the South end (perhaps comfrey in the corners once we get to them. . .).Tami
