Ladner Community Garden is Getting Water!

Its going to be a busy couple of weeks for the Ladner Community Garden and the Corporation of Delta. This Friday,May 13, the city has scheduled our water lines to be installed. That will happen on time unless there is some city emergency like a broken line somewhere else. They know we are very anxious to get growing.
Yesterday, I had Bartlett Tree Services come and take some soil samples for testing.As you know, the soil is the most important aspect when it comes to growing food. We will have the soil test results back in two weeks. When the soil was being taken for testing, we uncovered lots of huge worms. That's a good sign the soil is healthy. With our heavy clay soil of Ladner, the worms do a great job breaking it up for us.
If the weather is nice this weekend, we will plan on building some of the raised beds at my place. I have a large yard,okay that's an understatement, a huge yard, so lots of room for them here until we are ready to build the garden. If you would like to help out this Saturday, May 14, please give me a shout at deltagardener@dccnet.com
Thanks to those of you who have joined our community garden. We can't wait to meet you at tomorrows get together at Kensington Park at 7pm, Wednesday, May 11.
