Hello Gardeners & those on the wait list!
I am writing to remind you that this weekend, Saturday & Sunday, April 20 / 21 is our first work weekend of the season.
Please wear comfortable, sturdy shoes; bring gloves, hand tools and a friendly disposition!Norma & her posse will be fixing uip plots with new lumber. If you want to be part of her posse, bring a cordless drill and any other tool you think would be useful! I’m not sure what time they’ll be starting on Saturday, but my guess is in the cooler-but-not-too-early hours, say, 9:00
We’re going to leave the hours open; drop by whenever is convenient for you! I will be there around 10 on Saturday and will stay until I get too tired to continue.
There will be several things in the shed that may be pertinent to you:
1) a login sheet. Please don’t forget to log your time. Even if you don’t already have a plot, write your information down.
2) a list of things to do! I’ll have this posted on the bulletin board as well. Off-hand, I know there is a TON of weeding to be done. All the pathways are overrun with red dead nettle
3) contracts for those of you that still need to commit for the season.We will be changing the padlock codes to the locks this weekend. I don’t need your payment, but I do need your commitment so that I can give your plot away if you’re not going to be using it.
That’s it for right now. I look forward to seeing and meeting you on Saturday & Sunday!
I just wanted to drop a note to let you know I’m working on getting everything matched up to start assigning plots to the wait list! It won’t be long.
That said, if you still have not sent in your renewal, do it right now!
Print a flyer for your fridge or friends! >> 2013SeedSwap
As always, the seed swap is open to the public, (i.e. You do not need to be a member of the garden to come to the seed swap)! There is no entry fee. You do not have to bring seeds to swap, but it’s super-mega-awesome if you can.
Please try to include as much information about the seeds that you have. Please also, do not bring collected seeds from hybrids because their progeny is not dependable; however, you may bring packaged hybrids.
If there are any questions about what to bring or what not to bring, please leave a comment!
maybe you’re interested…

Hello Resident Gardeners, potential resident gardeners and friends of the Fox Point Community Garden!
I hope you are enjoying this amazing winter!
I have checked with Brian at the Portuguese-American Social Club to hold our 3rd Annual Seed Swap for the Garden. We can have either Tues, Feb 19 or Thurs Feb 21, so I want those of you who think you can make it to decide which day! Go here to cast your vote! http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=50fca291e4b0b57dea953d18 The deadline to vote is Friday, January 25, by 10pm, but voting now would be *awesome*.
The Seed Swap is free and open to the public. You do not need to have seeds to swap to come, but we’d love to have you swap ‘em if you gottem!
A quick note on seeds: Please give as much information about the seeds that you have. If these are seeds you collected from your own plants, please make sure they are not hybrid seeds. Hybrid seeds are not dependable. If you want to chance it, just be sure to tell the person you’re giving them to so they know it’s more experimental.
The Seed Swap is also where resident gardeners can sign the 2013 contract, yay! We should also have some speakers and maybe even a few snacks this time! What do you think?
We’re having a board meeting on the 26th, so I will be sending out the flyer & more information the last week of January.
