When I stopped by the Garden on Friday with new books for the kids, I used my time waiting for them to return from Alum Creek Beach by spraying weeds along the street and alley with Round Up. By the time I returned on Sunday afternoon, however, Sabrina had come and weeded the alley for several hours in the rain on Saturday. It hasn’t looked that good since we broke ground for the season in April. I’m always overwhelmed when someone goes over and beyond their chores and surprises me like that. She came to the Garden in the rain on Saturday hoping to get some red velvet cupcakes. She told me that I would notice her work and she was right.
On Saturday – weather permitting – we will put the Garden into the final touches for the bike tour of near east side community gardens on Saturday, August 10 by Yea Bikes! and Local Matters. We are thinking about scheduling a neighborhood litter pick up on the morning of Saturday, September 7. (Kickoff for the OSU/San Diego football game is not until 3:30 p.m. that afternoon). The Children’s Parade starts at 11 a.m. and ends at the Hot Times Festival in Olde Towne East that same day.
