Another year. Another beautiful closing day. The weather could not have been lovelier than it was today when the Stoddart Avenue Community Garden cleaned up to shut down the Garden for the winter. God blessed us once again.
A boatload of neighborhood kids came, harvested turnips and beets and then raked and engaged in general digging. And then eating and drinking us out of house and home. And then de-stuffing and composting our scarecrow. And then putting the spilled potting soil back in the bag for me.
Frank and Barb came. They disconnected our second rain tank, moved a compost bin from the south to north side of the Garden and transported compost and garden waste from the old location to the new compost bin location. Then Charlie joined them and built a third compost bin along the alley out of cinder blocks and landscaping stones, and moved more garden waste to it.
