A winter work day!

Around nine a.m., January 3, 2013 on a chilly Thursday morning San Juana and Erubiel awaited Ian and his rig. Shortly there after, Ian showed up in the ol' Red Reggie. Together they loaded the back of ol' Red Reggie with soil from PCUN. Even though it sunny and clear, it was cold and freezing. However a little movement and everyone started to warm up. Once the ol' Red Reggie was full San Juana and Ian headed to Washington elementary to do finish the rest of a little winter work!

With the soil from PCUN Ian and San Juana topped off the old beds. Thanks to Erubiel the 2"x 6" boards were ready to be hammered into new garden beds. With San Juana's help Ian assembled the garden beds; one 2' x 8' and anther 4' x 4'. With the remaining soil the 4' x 4' bed was filled, plus some added compost from the adjacent compost pile. More soil is needed but the garden is well underway for the 2013 growing season.

The next goals for the Washington garden are some movable benches, another couple beds, more soil, some garden art, a couple chalkboard areas for learning and planning, and last but not least a comfortable seating area to relax and enjoy the garden. Stay tuned for work days!
