The Gardens are Thriving!

The garden beds are thriving and look great. There certainly hasn't been much need for watering lately but we are looking at some more seasonable weather conditions in the coming weeks. Let's remember that the beds need 1" of water per week and that it is best delivered as a good dose twice a week as opposed to a sprinkling every day. Deep watering will encourage deep roots which in turn will help the plants should the weather turn hot.

There are still 4 beds available. If you are interested in a bed please contact http://tvillegarden@gmail.c​om​.
