Let's get our hands dirty!  Come in some comfy, work-in clothes and shoes!  

Tentative itinerary - 

1.  Spread compost onto the south ground bed using the sheet mulching method.  Spread mulch in walkways.  Plant with early cool weather crops using wide row and square foot gardening methods.

2.  Repair pallet vertical garden, then plant with hot peppers.

3.  Refurbish barrel garden.

4.  Plant seeds in one of the raised beds to grow into seedlings that will be transplanted into the ground gardens, and cover with plastic if needed to protect from the frost.
Come prepared to get down and dirty! Wear comfortable, work-in clothes and shoes!

Do you have egg cartons, toilet paper rolls, or paper towel rolls? We could use them for the transplants!
