Hi Susan, yes I am interested in hosting a work party but I don't exactly know what that entails. Would you be willing to describe the process to me? Thanks, Jacque

What needs to be done in my garden - It's very hard for me to ask because I know how to/love to/can do all these things but I'm just getting to stiff to do it all by myself and I don't climb ladders anymore when I'm the only one here.
1) weeding
2) prune four asian pears
3) remove one inidentifiable red apple tree
4) clean up leaves from neighbors' birches, bamboos and my apples/pears
5) trim back neighbors' birches off my roof
6) repot big plants
7) plant a goumi and a mulberry
8) clean the courtyard (involves moving big pots)
9) dump last year's tomato pots onto the veg garde
10) remove evergreen blackberries (not many, just in an awkward place)
11) mow small grass patch (I have a nice push mower)
12) clean up courtyard, deck, patio
13) sharpen tools

Any help I could get with any of these tasks - especially the heavy lifting - would be very much appreciated.

Anytime during the school break would be great or just about any weekend - except my mom turns 89 on the 21st so I'm busy that day ;-)

How about Valentine's work party? Spread the love! I propose Sunday between the hours of 1-4 p.m. Would that work for either of you? Keith???

In looking at the list, seems like we could do a bit of instruction s well... I'm thinking of sharpening and pruning.

Hey everyone,
I'd be down to do Sod-Busters, but until Early/Mid March as we're working on a landscape install and setting up our greenhouses. If anyone from NE (where I live) wanted to come down to Beacon Hill (where greenhouses are) sometime soon for a planting party, we'd be delighted to have you.

Valentines works just right for me but anytime during the next nine days would work just as well or any weekend after that...

Hello, I have to admit I don't know my way around the Ning site very well so I'm not sure the best place to post my message - I just wanted to say I had a blast at the Edible Garden Tour yesterday. My garden on the tour and I had such a wonderful time meeting everyone, and talking about gardening, bees, chickens, and the like. What a great way to share ideas and have an opportunity for people to get to know each other. Many thanks to everyone who came out and to those who organized the tour. I look forward to seeing you all again hopefully sometime soon!

I had a blast as well but I've not been able to find the garden descriptions on the main page - where are they?
