Summertime tips for garden success:
Be vigilant, the army worms and other pests are about!
They can be treated with BT available at Hester and Zipperer, or Captain Jacks Bug Juice available at Herb Creek. Both need to be reapplied after rain/ watering. Neem oil is a good organic alternative.
To those who have sweet corn, the first farmer has been robbed by the squirrels! If your corn looks ready, pick it otherwise the squirrels will!
As always, keep your garden free of weeds and diseased debris, this can be a breeding ground for pests and more disease.
Lastly, feed your plants as needed. Frequent watering causes the nutrients to leech through the soil.
On May 1st we had 26 visitors from the Presbyterian Preschool Program. A fun garden discovery tour with Farmers Jane, Carol and Jill was the first order of business! Following the tour a picnic in the pavilion 😊. To top off the field trip, the children potted a plant to give to Moms for Mothers Day. A good time was had by all!

Our shed is cleaned up and looks downright spiffy. Let’s keep it that way. It is so important to clean any tools thoroughly with water before returning to the shed to prevent nematodes and germs from spreading to gardens. We appreciate your help with this!
