Stillpoint Backyard Garden


UPDATE


Many of the native plants that a group of members and friends planted last year came up this Spring: Coral Bells, Wild Columbine, Anemone, Windflowers and a fern all took root. There is a native black-eyed-susan-type plant that survived even after being trampled by installation of a fence. Actually, the forest fern survived the same ordeal. It is thriving after Jay transplanted it to a shadier location near the basement door.


Lucine plans to make easy-to-read labels for the natives so that we can more confidently weed. Lots of weeds…………………………. 


NEW: VEGETABLES AND HERBS


Jenny planted vegetables and herbs on the right hand side after Jay removed more of the bamboo roots. Jenny says her vision is to go out and pick a tomato for Sunday brunch. YUM!


Garden Maintenance


Those working in the garden informally agreed that before and after Stillpoint gatherings would be the ideal time to work in the garden—it would allow access to the building for tools, bathrooms, etc. However, members and friends can visit the garden anytime. The front gate to the ramp is always open, and there are a few tools outside. You might want to bring your own tools and gloves. 


These photos were taken June 1st, before the vegetables were planted along the south fence.
