We had a great mulching session on Sunday and now our batch of natives on the western boundary are looking very happy. 🙂

OK so I’m having a go at writing a blog. This will be my observations, thoughts and ideas about the Glen Forrest Community Garden.
The Garden is at an interesting point in its development. We now have a lease from the shire, a shire approved plan and our first vegetables being produced. Kerry pulled together an amazing grant application which was submitted this week. If it is successful we will have some decent funds with which to do some serious garden development.
I felt bad on Thursday as I realised on the way to work that I had forgotten to drop the key of to Sonia so that she and Vera could do the watering in the afternoon and I was not going to be home until late. And then I felt more bad because I forgot to let her know. Anyway, as penance, I did the watering alone on Friday afternoon as the helper candidates were off for the long weekend or otherwise busy. As it was so hot I left it until quite late and enjoyed my time watering in the twilight. Even the mozzies weren’t too fierce. And I found a cute little roma tomato on the ground which I promptly rinsed off and gobbled up – very tasty.
Hopefully will see a few of the troops tomorrow morning.
And the celebratory dinner seems to be shaping up into a bit of a party – looking forward to it, should be lots of fun!
