Another bright spring day in our community garden.

Everyone weeded... and weeded.

Well, almost everyone... some contributed their smiles.

By 11 am, we were baked.

Before going home, we stopped to admire the beauty of our community.

I get Choked up

A wise person once said "To Plant a Garden, Is to believe in Tomorrow" I recon there is truth in that.

But maybe there is magic in the ground that only comes out in a garden? Sometimes it peeks out from under a leaf

Sometimes from behind one

There is always color, sometimes subtle

sometimes vivid

Well we seem to be off to a good start seems all the players are here and ready for work, bring on 

See ya in the Garden

ACG January 2012

Our 1st work day of 2012 went very well. We munched on bagels, cookies & coffee. We received and spread a load of Mango Mulch (thanks to Grab & Grow). We created a garden box for our new members, Stan & Carol. We planted Avocado and Gravenstein trees, pulled weeds, created a trellis for the grapes & moved the strawberries. Six days later our first good rain came. What timing!!!

July at the ACG

Hello, ACG has taken on a whole new look this summer. I think members are planting better and smarter than last year. Tomatoes are not being watered as much, over-crowding is less frequent, our storage shed is built and flowers are coming up everywhere! Please enjoy these shots of the ACG flowers in July 2011...

Thanks Garden Team!

It's June 25th and summer's finally here. We had a work day today. Members got to create their stepping stone with their garden bed number on it. Dave & John nearly completed the shed. Weeds got pulled around the compost bin and we started spreading our new pile of mulch around it. Our apples are looking good! Please enjoy today's photographs of our beautiful summer garden.
