The Hells Angels M/C Baltimore charter next door came through for us with a great donation of a 70 gallon water tank ( photo above). This past weekend we were able to get the following donations from CGRN/Parks & People and the Free Farm, Thanks! :
Seedlings (in numbers): Kale (several kinds), collards, cabbage, mustard greens, chard, lettuce, broccoli
Herb Seeds: rosemary, sorrel, basil, parsley (several kinds), anise, chervil, caraway, fennel, coriander, savory, oregeno, sage, garlic chives
Vegetable Seeds: cuces, pepper, broccoli, brussel sprouts, beets, swiss chard, fava beans, watermelon, pumpkin
Flower seeds: strawflower, california poppy, cosmos, scarlett flax, salvia blue bedder, st. Johns fire, pansy, various marigolds
…and more coming that we ordered special.

So, we wanted to do a planting of some of these this weekend as well and for that we needed to plan for a cool evening not a warm midday….which means….

SUNDAY NIGHT  4/8      5 pm-8 pm (or later) 
We plan to do the planting w/ our master gardener Jeff there showing us how …as well as have a small
BBQ Following the Planting
for anyone interested in coming out. We will provide some burgers and buns and I hope you might all bring along something else to share. Some live MUSIC will also be provided…

We have some tools/gloves, but if you have a shovel and gloves, a trowel, bring them along. Also, best to wear boots if you have them until all the digging and earth moving is done.
