Dear Branford Community Gardeners:
I have two items:
1) “Open Gardens–Weeds and All!” – You are welcome to visit my vegetable garden to ask questions about planting and to get ideas for possible layouts of your garden. See below for times and location on Friday May 15,
2) The seedlings from Vaiuso Farms will be available for pickup either Friday May 15 or Saturday, May 16. See below for times and directions. Please bring either cash or a check made out to Branford Community Gardens. There’s still time to order, so send me an email if you want anything – See the earlier post for a list of available seedlings.
Plant pickup either:
) Friday, May 15, 3 pm – 7:30 pm at 13 Old Smugglers Road, Branford. Old Smugglers is a horseshoe shaped road off Stannard Ave (Take Harbor Street to the last stop sign at a cross street before getting to Branford Point – turn right on Stannard – take the 2nd or 3rd right on to Old Smugglers). Alternatively go from Rte 1 to Short Beach Road (corner of Kohl’s and A&P shopping center), turn left at the 2nd light onto Stannard – take the 2nd or 3rd left on to Old Smugglers. I have a grey house with lots of flower beds in front and a basketball hoop in the driveway. I’ll have the plants on the steps behind my house. If you’d like, you can look at my vegetable garden (weeds and all, definately still a work in progress!) and I can answer questions about planting.
2) Saturday morning, 10 am – 12 pm at the Branford Community Gardens, 16 Birch Rd. I’ll bring the plants to the community gardens for pickup.
