Uninvited Guest at the Martin House

Bird lovers, how high can a snake climb? My brother dispatched this snake that had climbed 20 feet up the pole and wrapped himself the entire way around the Martin house. – Vicki Rohr

Mount Juliet Library Project


Spring has sprung and summer is sizzling at the Mount Juliet Library. Volunteer opportunities galore for watering during these hot summer mornings; or, evenings as the library is open until 8:00 pm week days. But, please wear your mosquito repellent!

One person  needed for any scheduled day, Tuesday-Thursday-Saturdays. Please let Ronnie Gammons (gidley41@bellsouth.net) or Patti Stein (mammabear329@yahoo.com) know if you can help.  We can walk you through the routine. Easy/Peasy!  Just wear your badge, get the water faucet key from the librarian, attach the hose and you are good to go.

Enjoy the pictures taken at the library this spring. It is turning into a lovely cottage garden welcoming visitors, especially children; pollinators and birds.

Thanks, Ronnie

Another Friday Night at the Demonstration Garden

Friday, June 8, 2018

Little Ben gets some help building the Pollinator Hotel from dad, Jeremy, and mom, Brandee.  This is just a start and more items are needed so anything from Brandee’s list that you can donate would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks to all who helped us tonight including Darlene, Rose, Rosemary, Carol B., Whit (Irrigation Specialist Extraordinaire), and Jan.

By the way, Helen McPeak (Wilson County Fairgrounds Executive Director) stopped by and said the Demonstration Garden was looking great!  Also great to see Ruth Correll and Lucas Holman on the first day of the Neddy Jacobs celebration!


NOTE: To anyone working in the garden on other days besides Tuesdays and Friday evenings, please water the fairy garden and the concrete bench as they dry out very quickly. There is a green watering can in the shed at the back of the building. Thanks much! Hope to see you next Tuesday morning around 8 am!

Vicki & Brandee

Friday Night In the Demo Garden – 1 June 2018

Hunted and scavenged rocks for one of the trees, weeded & mulched the sidewalk garden by the MG building and installed obelisks in Brandee’s & Darlene’s vegetable garden….oh, and sweated, laughed and had fun!  Plant people are the best!

Thank you Vicki Rohr for providing these photos!
