Snow, Hail & Freezing Temperatures Damages Fruit Tree Blooms

It was a tough night in the garden on Saturday night. We had enough warm weather to bring out some beautiful blooms on the fruit trees. Unfortunately, those blooms froze with the lower freezing temperatures, hail and snow. No apricots this year.

The good news is that the fruit trees had a wonderful winter with all the extra moisture and are in good shape to grow strong and bloom again next year. We may still have some success with the plums and peaches. Mother nature has her ways. Stay tuned….

A big shout out to Odell, who with decades of orchard experience, helped me in early March with the pruning of all the fruit trees. This professional pruning will give the trees the best chance for being healthy and prosperous.

Garden Workday & Meeting

Garden Workday – 9 April 2017 at 11:00 AM

Happy Spring!

If you would like to continue gardening with us or if you are looking for a new plot, please fill our your annual application at FORMS on this website.

Paper applications will also be brought to the Workday this Sunday and can also be found at the CABI office.

It looks like we have 95% of our gardeners returning this year, so we will only have a few plots to hand out. Please make a note on the application if you would also be interested in Liberty Community Garden as a second choice.
