Monticello Garden Update

Welcome to the Lower Columbia School Gardens blog!  First, raise your hand if you like the word “blog” ….. anyone?  No?  That’s what I thought.  Me neither. Sounds like cold oatmeal.   Anyway, here are a few photos of Monticello Garden Club kids planting the new area a few weeks ago.  They’ve been working hard all year to get to this point – they’ve spread yards and yards of gravel on curved paths, formed mounded beds, moved the greenhouse…. and now they’re doing the really exciting stuff!  Kids are now planting fruit trees, Japanese maples, blueberries, wild strawberries, lavender, and more.  This Thursday Nov 17 we’ll be harvesting potatoes and roasting them with olive oil, fresh herbs, onions…. stop by for a taste, 2:30 to 4:30.  500 free tulip bulbs are waiting to be planted too, so there’s lots of fun to be had.


That’s all for now!  We’ll take a break and be back at it in 2012!
