Monday, April 9, Garden update...
4/9/2012 | Sheryl McGlochlin
8 - 10 am, Monday: We still have a lot of work to do in our Holladay gardens, mostly weed control around all of the hundreds of peas that are coming up. Let me know if you are able to come to Holladay and help us anytime this week. If you can't come on a scheduled time, email me and I'll show you what needs to be done. I have the right tools to use so it will be fast and easy to do.
Once we get the weeds out between the rows of peas, we will quickly lay black plastic mulch down which will help us eliminate any further weeding in those areas. A very smart tip if you want to eliminate a ton of weeding in your garden!
1 - 3 pm: We're shooting a video today on How to Build your own inexpensive Hoophouse - You are invited to come and watch us film this or just wait for the video that will be posted soon. Sorry, no children are invited to attend this event. Call me for the specific address here in Holladay where we are shooting this. 801-278-5313
South Jordan A: 11371 So. 2865 W.
We worked hard last Saturday and got 8 long rows of crops planted. Crops include: onions, radishes, turnips, lettuce, spinach, kohlrabi (from the cabbage family), carrots, and more is coming including potatoes, broccoli, cabbage, etc.
We need your help in getting more rows planted this week! This is a very big garden!
THREE Gardens will provide all of our early spring crops - Holladay A & B AND South Jordan A
All of our other gardens are being prepared to handle ALL of our summer crops which will all be planted by Mother's Day, (May 14th). If you are able to help us with our Early Spring Gardens, plan to go to one of these THREE gardens. We need you!
