Demonstration Vegetable Garden Work Day on May 14, 2021

We had a very successful work day at the Demonstration Vegetable Garden on Friday, May 14.  Within a couple of hours we put up trellises for the cucumbers, planted herbs, three different types of okra, tomatoes, pole beans, green peppers, eggplants, squash and popcorn for the Three Sisters Garden.  

Thank you very much to the folks (and little toad) who came out to help with the weeding, planting and mulching.  It is greatly appreciated!

Rosemary Marshall and Joni Wohnrade

I thank all the people that worked on this day. Susie Butler, Patti Hogue, Patti Stein, Norma Dee, Jeff Puffen, Ed Jacobs, Bill Brooks, David Bates, David Vowell and John Rick’s. What a great bunch of friends I am blessed with.

This is Susie Butler and Patti Stein refilling beds.

Our new lady at the garden. We we’re very thankful.

Poor Jeff shoveled wheel barrows of soil. He deserved a break.
