Planting Day 2009, held on May 30th, was a great success! Over 35 members of the garden participated, planting a variety of vegetables and flowers. Members planted the traditional favorites including tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash. Other members tended to their garden beds thinning out radishes, beets and pea plants. Members were aided by expert Master Gardeners from the University of Connecticut. They provided great advice and guidance to members. Thanks Marty, Trish and Jen!
Thompsonville Community Garden members also planted a new flowerbed on the east side of the garden that will produce beautiful flowers throughout the summer and fall. Special thanks to the members who helped create the other new flower bed, with rock garden, towards the western edge of the garden!
