As most of you know, you will be getting screened compost for your garden plots. The compost will come from the Branford Transfer Station. Alex Palluzzi is monitoring the situation and will let us know as soon as possible when the compost will be delivered to the garden site. The hold-up right now is that the weather is too wet to screen it. But, we can anticipate having it pretty soon. Then, I’ll need a big force of people armed with shovels, rakes and wheelbarrows to get the compost dumped onto each plot. I want each plot owner to be responsible for spreading the compost around their own plot. I’m hoping to get a machine to help turn it under, but haven’t got one yet. Worst case scenario – everybody will be raking it into their own plots. The compost is important to get our soil in good shape and increase the nitrogen level. I’ll be contacting you as soon as we hear about the compost delivery.
Remember that we have seedlings available! Contact Malaine to place your order.
