    DALE AND SUSIE worked for about three hours in the Celebration Garden this morning. Given that publicity for the Gardens Work Morning was minimal, I was very glad to see Dale and have his company and productive work. We spent most of the time stubbing back branches on beautyberries, which can use a haircut in the […]

    I, SUSIE, THOUGHT OUR HOT WEATHER HAD BROKEN WHEN I SCHEDULED TODAY’S WORK MORNING. My hopeful belief was proved completely wrong as it is currently 91 deg. F in the shade, and it was plenty hot all morning. So my gratitude to the hardy Gardeners who came to BuxMont this morning and cheerfully worked until close to […]

    What a great turn-out for weeding and canna planting this morning, Saturday, April 30, 2016! Ken, Susie, Dale, Adrienne, Lillian, Marion, John, Lynne, and Melissa all worked on weeding the biggest island bed, essentially finishing it. This is a very major accomplishment! In this bed, Lynne started her work by digging out large seedling Cup […]

    DUE TO EVENT AND TRAVEL CONFLICTS, we ended up canceling our October work sessions in the Gardens. No doubt Harry continued to work in the Detention Basin Wild Garden, and Rick worked independently early in October. Rick pruned roses, weeded, and excised pawpaw suckers outside of classroom 105. Nancy most likely worked too, preparing the […]

    TREVOR AND STEVE worked at various times on Saturday to essentially complete their part of the NEW LABYRINTH. The labyrinth is located creekwards of the rear parking lot. It features several circuits enclosed in a perimeter of trees and shrubs. Unlike many labyrinths, it incorporates handsome stained wooden benches in one of the circuits so that the […]

    INDEPENDENT WORK by several of our “regulars” has created new features and improved maintenance. Dale was very eager not to have to re-weed again an extensive area on the creek edge of the Celebration Garden. He and Ken had worked hard there on August 1 but hadn’t been able to finish corn-glutening and mulching. Dale returned […]

    DESPITE SOME FAIRLY HEAVY RAIN between 8:34 and 8:45 a.m., seven of us accomplished a number of worthy tasks today in the Gardens. Lynne and Adrienne pulled up the browned weeds in the parking lot gravel along the edge of the detention basin. Dale had sprayed these last week, so they now looked both ugly […]

    GARDENS WORK has continued (thanks to many) even though Susie has not published updates–just too busy with vacation, memorial services for extended family members, and the Marriage Equality Wedding Reception, I guess. While I need to catch up on gardeners’ Worthy Accomplishments for June, I want to let you know about some recent activities. Dale on July 11 spent […]
