Can you believe its already September and that’s about over with. Saturday the 22nd Autumn begins, so here we are into fall, like it or not. The leaves are changing everywhere, which is beautiful, but we know what’s coming. I hope there will be the white stuff so we have water next year. But we don’t want to think about that yet. My tomatoes are just now ripening. For now we still have gardening and clean up. It’s been beautiful weather for these kind of things. Let’s get together Thursday and talk gardening.
This July has been warm to say the least. Hope you are able to keep yourself and your garden well hydrated. Your garden will do best if you wait to water until the cooler hours of the morning or evening. It will wilt when it’s hot to protect itself, then perk up when the day cools.
This month’s meeting will be about the tour de farms and Zucchini fest all happening Saturday August 18th. With Tour de Farms happening in the morning. You can purchase a ticket to ride the bus we have provided and visit 4 local farms. This is the first year the tour has come to Bayfield and the garden club will get the proceeds!
Then starting at noon the annual Zucchini Fest is happening. Our tribute to all that zucchini you have or wish you had in your garden. You can bring your favorite zucchini dish to share and partake in all the fun. We even have music and prizes for various zucchini events. It’s amazing what you can do with squash.
Come to the meeting and find out more about both, so you can tell your friends.
We also have Field Peas to share, for a small donation, for a cover crop thanks to Andrew and Southwest Seed. Find out more about this at the meeting also.
Hope to see you all there.
Come tell us how your garden is getting along. Ask gardening questions and hear about the Zucchini festival and tour de farms that is happening in September.
Our meeting is this Thursday the 28 at 6pm. Hope to see you there.
ATTENTION: Town of Bayfield Water Restrictions in effect!
Anyone with a garden bed at the library garden can only water on odd days of the month. 1,3,5,7,etc…. if you have a timer and drip hose that is fine, just needs to be set to odd days. You can only water between 6-9am and 6-9pm.
You can still water but just on the odd number of days, fitting for us gardeners don’t you think!
It’s spring lots going on this month the compost class was great if you missed it last Saturday, great information from Tom Bartel growingfoodwell.com. Check his website out if you missed it.
This month we will be going over plans for the plant exchange and asking for volunteers to help with all the fun and plants.
Kami will be bringing the onions too if you are looking for things you can plant already, onions are one of the easiest and for club members they are a great price.
See you all at 6 in the garden!!
We had a fantastic seed exchange and soil block class a couple of weeks ago and look forward to another soil block class soon. Probably on April 15th 12-2 if we have enough interest. Plant exchange is coming up next month on May 19th and we will need everyone’s help to make it a huge success again. People come from all over for this event and there are so many wonderful plants to take home! I have Spring Mountain Growers list for this year! She will have a terrific selection of the most fantastic plants available. Let me know if you want a peak at the list 🙂
Hope to see you all soon!
