Today it is still hot!! Yeah!
Everything is very very DRY, so water your gardens. We haven't had real rain in weeks.
If anyone wants a square foot garden, talk to Bruce, lot 113.
Here is the information that was posted yesterday in the Bare Oaks blog (http://www.blog.bareoaks.ca/2016/05/want-to-do-bare-gardening-at-bare-oaks.html) :
Since Bruce first built the community gardens in 2010, we have been doing Square Foot Gardening. It's a more environmentally friendly way to garden where you get the same production but in only 20% of the space. It is easy plus it saves water, resources, time and effort.
This year Bruce rebuilt the 4' x 4' raised beds and he 4'x4' and are now available for planting. He provided the labour and Bare Oaks paid for the materials so using the garden is free for members. They are available on a first come, first served basis.
To reserve your garden plot, send an email to: NakedGardens@BareOaks.ca.
Participation in The Naked Gardens is easy. There are just a few things to keep in mind:
This is an organic garden. No pesticides or herbicides may be used.
- Only the Square Foot Gardening method is permitted.
- Each gardener is responsible for their plot(s). Any naked gardener who does not maintain their plot(s) will forfeit the use of the plot(s) and any access to the produce.
- If this is your first time trying Square Foot Gardening, please limit yourself to a maximum of 3 plots.
Snorkelling in the lake today...
Have you heard the frog noise at night? They are grey tree frogs. They are loud.
We also have some thrushes here this year ... which is rare. You can hear their musical singing near the Quonset hut.
The grass is dry... and crunchie. Not many people walking around...
I think the heat burned off the mosquitoes... but the deer flies are out... they take a chunk out of you.
There have been a few bonfires at night.
Watch out for the frogs when you drive to the seasonal area at night!!
Time to go for a walk...
