Winter garden

Not much has been happening in the garden these past few months, mainly due to the cold, wet weather.  With August around the corner, we can already feel the new, Spring energy in the air and it feels like the plants (and us humans) are awakening from a long, winter sleep!

This week Sarah has been propagating cuttings of some of the indigenous flowerering shrubs to start a nursery.  We have 2 local volunteers who are busy learnng the ropes (or should I say 'plants'?)  

In the Food Garden, summer crops have been sown this week, as well as corn, gem squash and pumpkins planted directly into beds.
