A few housekeeping items to you.

  1. If you have not received a bed renting fee due to the fact you have no PLPOA account, please just pay the $25 in person with Jen Pitcher at the PLPOA office at 230 Port Avenue. Thanks.
  2. If you have not yet turned over your bed, added compost, and/or planted, your water has been turned off for conservation. When you are ready, just turn the knob at your bed to gain access to the water. See attachment.
  3. Gardeners are using the greenhouse. Feel free to use it as well. There are some watering containers in there so you can hand water from the rain barrel.
  4. June planting: At the end of the first week(when you feel confident the danger of frost is past) transplant tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, winter squash, cucumbers, beansmelons, and flowers.  Sow the next succession of salad greens.
