Project Bloom February Update

Hello Project Bloomers! February is here, which means that Project Bloom has started up again! Seeds have already been planted for the coreopsis, gallardia, andno_dogs1200 rudbeckia. We also planted 20 flats of Alyssum in Royal Carpet (purple) and Carpet of Snow (white.) I painted two new signs to be put up at the garden, this “No Dogs” sign that will be mounted on the fence later this week, and also one that says “Seeding is Believing” to be put above the Greenhouse entry.

We got 2 checks from the Master Gardeners after our presentation to the group last week. One from the group and one from Judy S. (Very big thank you!) Bob and I went to Job Lot and got 2 birdbaths for the gardens. The big one will go in the main Pollinator Garden area, and the little one will go in the children’s garden. They are glazed terra cotta, so we will store them indoors until after last frost. Wth the rest of the money, I got a few more perennial seeds, and Bob is going to go to Home Depot anseeding1200d buy 2×2 posts and enough wire to complete the “deer proofing” of the vegetable garden, around the new fenced area.

birdbaths1200Project Bloom meets every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, from 9:30 to 11 am at the Greenhouse. We welcome new people, and you don’t have to RSVP! Just show up! We can always use the extra hands and friendly gardeners!
