No work party today!! PLUS Horrible Mess in the Greenway!!

It's much too awful weather-wise to have a work party in the Greenway. 

And there's good news and bad news. The good news is: it's raining, so watering will not be necessary.

The bad news, however, is that someone decided to do a very dramatic pruning/thinning of the oak trees in the Greenway — maybe they were a hazard to pedestrians walking through? — and, instead of taking the branches they took off away with them, they've piled everything that they cut off all along the south side of the Greenway on top of all our plants and shrubs. Tons and mountains of branches! It's a real mess.
We'll have to get a Park Board work crew to come and take away all the debris soon — but, in any case, I expect we will have lost a lot of plants! After nursing them along all summer!

Anyway, check it out if you get a chance, and we'll try for a work party next Monday.


I tried to get a good shot of the devastation, but my camera gave up the ghost after one photo. This will give you an idea:

Work Party -- tentatively -- tomorrow (Aug 31) at 3:00

Work Party -- tentatively -- tomorrow (Aug 31) at 3:00…
Weather permitting. If it's raining, let's not.
If it has rained during the day tomorrow but it's not raining at 2:30 or 3:00, we can meet and see what needs to be done. Maybe a bit of clean-up after the giant windstorm.
If it hasn't rained all day tomorrow, maybe we can try out our new 150' of flexi-light hoses.

Work party in the Greenway tomorrow, Monday, Aug 24th

As usual, 3:00. Some of our plants are really suffering, so we should have at least two groups watering (one on the planters and one on the Greenway)… Paul's away tomorrow, too, so if you can possibly help out, that would be grand.
Cheers, Penny

Work Party on Monday (Aug 10th)

There will be a work party in the Greenway on Monday, 3:00. I will not be there, but Paul will have a key to the kingdom (er… I mean storage cupboard).
Always lots to do. Come if you can! Bring tools if you've got 'em.

No Regular Work Party tomorrow, Monday, Aug 2nd

It's a long weekend and tomorrow's the BC Day holiday, so Paul and I have arbitrarily decided not to have a regular work party tomorrow, but the two of us will meet tomorrow morning to water everything. If you want to help out with that, we'll be there around 9:30.
