The Great Garden Plot

The “greening” of Fairbanks comes quickly–usually within one week.  Perhaps the locals this year felt it was a bit delayed, due to an unusually warm April.  The balmy temperatures of 60 degrees that early in the year tempted us to believe it was almost warm enough to consider planting something.  The rule is never plant before June 1, as it can always freeze.

Behind the Inn is a huge garden plot, which for years has been greatly devoid of anything worthy of being called a garden.  However, this weekend, everything changed. 

Well over a dozen folks descended to make this area a beauty to behold.  Jill and her extended family have been scheming up how to make all things beautiful.  Given the four hours that tranformed the garden from a heap of stones, two truckloads of compost, and scattered leaves, the garden plot is prepped for a tgreat transformation.  With tags for the future rows of beautiful veggies all placed, stay tuned for sporadic updates on the greening of the garden.
