Tuesday, March 6, Help us finish planting peas today!

Sheryl McGlochlin - Tuesday, March 06, 2012

 

 

9 am - 4 pm

We are on the final lap of planting 1000 ft. of peas and need to finish this task today before the storm comes in tonight!  If you are able to help us, please let me know. We will be very grateful!!

Just think of all the delicious peas we'll be able to harvest around the 1st week of May!!

Call or text me at 801-278-5313 before you come just to find out where we are on this project.

We have been soaking all the peas since Monday morning, which is why the urgency to get them in the ground today.  Once the storm hits tonight, we'll have to wait a day or two before we can get back in to plant again.

Thank you so much, in advance, for helping us with this job.

Food available for those who come today:  I have a loaf of Artisan Bread and a dozen bagels for those who will help us!  Bring your own grocery bags with you.

Holladay Gardens are always in need of help since this is headquarters to all of our gardens.

In addition to working in the soil, we also prepare, plant and grow all of the plants, for all of our gardens, from seed, early in the spring.

Even the containers for the plants are hand made!  Once you learn how to do this, some of this work can be done at home, so join us!

You may be working inside the greenhouse or outside in the gardens.

Wear work clothes that can get dirty.

Bring work gloves, water bottle and snack if you like.

The work sessions are great opportunities to get "hands on" experience in the garden.
