COMMUNITY GARDEN’S FIRST WORK DAY
TURNS EVERYTHING GREEN AND FRESH
November 12, 2016
Some twenty gardeners gathered at the Community Garden on Second Street in Cedar Key for its first workday of the season, November 1, 2016. And work, they did.
They mowed the rear lawn;
they tidied up leftover cardboard;
they reulched year-old beds, tossing and
turning soil and adding nutrients and fresh mulch;
they transplanted sprouts to newly mulched beds;
they cleaned the shell walkway;
they weeded and planted the flower beds;
they uprooted weeds from the garden’s periphery;
they added fresh mulch to the ground around the beds;
they weeded the trellis;
they replanted the community bed from which transplants come.
The carpentry team, Alban Cyr, Joe Hand, Tom Deverin, and others, added a new trellis, placed immediately to the right as you enter the garden through the gate on Second Street. This trellis displays the Cedar Key Arts Center’s pieces.
Best of all were the folks new to the garden. They seeded or transplanted sprouts into their newly assigned beds with the help of the rest of the gardeners.
In about three weeks, several kinds of vegetables ready to transplant: cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, and three types of lettuce etc.
Gardener or not, do drop by the Community Garden and enjoy the incredible number of butterflies, greens, and blooming flowers. All are welcome!
