Gardening season begins! After the long long winter and the rather crazy spring, the temperature should be settling down nicely in the next week with spring frost well behind us. With that, we will be opening the garden next week on Saturday 1pm, mixing compost into the rather clayish soil of the lower garden and weeding the bins in our upper terrace gardens and raised beds.
Then there is that patch of ground with the ever invasive Japanese knotweed, which appears to be slowly creeping towards the garden. To control them we will need to cut them many many times and disposed of the stalks safely for fear that it might take over everything. From the numerous online sites, our organic attempts at controlling them will likely be a long and multi-yeared struggle.
Lots of things to do and elbow grease needed so bring your friends and your friends friends to come dig with us!
Meeting is on Saturday May 12, 2012 1:00pm
behind 3534 University (Dept. of Environment building). See you there!
