May 8th: Opening day/planting day

Saturday, May 8th is opening day/planting day for Cedar Falls Community Gardens!  I did a walkthrough of the garden yesterday with the city as a final step before the spring tilling of the plots.  I would like everybody to please re-check their plot assignments a couple days out from opening day as I may be changing some of the plot assignments.  Plots will be marked with yellow flags that have the number on one side and the letter on the other (e.g. A 10).  We have a lot of leftover and donated fencing, trellises, tomato cages, and other items from last year located on the NE corner of the gardens–these are for common use in the community gardens so please feel free to use any of these.  I’ll be posting 2-3 times a week for the next few weeks to talk about garden operations and some new news for this growing season.
