The junk in front of the square foot gardens is being cleared up. Thanks to Kim, Phil, Mike, Bruce and me! It looks nice!! Bruce built a composting bin.
There is still one garden left... the person who reserved it is not using it so... have at it.
The Glen Echo field area has been roped off... probably for parking on the weekend.
The new key fob system is not in place yet. The out gate is slowwwww. Nearly ran into it a few times... I have good brakes. Heh heh.
Hump day on Wednesday... June 29, 4pm – 6pm
Open mic at 9pm on Friday night.
Not sure what the schedule is this weekend as I can't find it posted anywhere. All it says on the Bare Oaks site is:
The grass is still crunchie... we ... need... rain...
It's strawberry pickin' time! Brooks farms (http://www.brooksfarms.com/) has a ton of really nice strawberries. $2.40 a pound for pick your own. 9am to 7pm. mid-June to mid-July. Take Mt. Albert road through Mt. Albert... jogs left across the town line and the pickin' is on the right. I picked 20 pounds today... 3 batches of jam and a ton of frozen berries for smoothies or... strawberry daiquiris... :-) Mmmmm.
Peas are not ready yet... it says on the website that they are ready but I asked, and they are not.
Not many people here today. A few people were swimming in the lake.
The area around the petanque court now has dirt, topsoil and grass seed. With this lack of rain, don't hold your breath waiting for grass.
No one has been playing petanque this year. I find that odd. I was used to chitter chatter on Saturday morning.
The Outback gardens have gone crazy ... it seems the lack of rain is making the weeds grow... plus the daisies and coreopsis (yellow daisies). Phew.
According to the license of occupation, you cannot wash your car or water your grass with tap water. It says nothing about watering gardens or cleaning trailers.
Too humid to lay out in the sun today...
The poison ivy has been sprayed... I think that was over a week ago. You will see signs around the property.
The social committee hut floor is being repaired.
The watering cans (2) that were at the Outback... have gone missing. If you know what happened to them, feel free to put them back... :-)
Lots of people at the Outback firepit this past weekend. It's nice to see it being used. I thought I heard drums... ?
As for the 3 designated smoking areas ... HA HA HA. Everyone is smoking while driving, walking... good thing the red butt cans are still all over the park. No seriously, it is a good thing or else there would be butts everywhere!
The baby geese should start flying soon... WE ALL HOPE. Still no flight feathers on the adults so they can't leave yet.
Not much news... time to go for a walk...
