With overnight temperatures steadily above 50 degrees (and highs often above 70), it is time to get our garden planted. The tomatoes, herbs (basil, lemon basil, sage, parsley and onions), and zinnias that we're growing in the southern window are bursting from their pots, ready to brave the windy conditions on the roof!
We have had tremendous support from the gardening group of Professional Dimensions - in addition to the time they have put in helping me organize and plan the garden, they have donated seed starting materials, seedlings (which we will be planting this weekend), garden tools and materials. Thank you to all!! We also have a number of volunteers who have donated personally-grown starters and who will be helping to plant this weekend before the Open House.
Speaking of which - check out www.edibleskyline.mivoz.com for details about the upcoming Grand Opening Celebration next weekend, June 2nd from 12-3pm. In partnership with the WI Arthritis Program, we will be sharing some garden wellness tips, offering some hands-on experience using adaptive garden tools and answering your questions about the Edible Skyline Project. We hope to see you there!
