This has been a busy month for RCMGA. We continue to work on the demonstration garden at Highland Rim. We removed large amounts of “weeds” and mulched the beds. The arbors are nearly complete, and the vegetable garden should be taking shape soon. The blueberry bushes are looking good and are abuzz with bees.
We had our first Spring Seminar on Earth Day, April 22, and it was a success! A big thanks to the volunteers, speakers, and Rob Ellis and the crew at Highland Rim. I have a feeling this will be the first of many seminars and events hosted by RCMGA at Highland Rim.
Our next big event is our annual plant sale. It is May 13 at the UT Extension office in downtown Springfield. The plants in the greenhouse are looking great, and the volunteers tending to them will have them ready in time. I have my eye on a few plants I need. I also have some work cut out for me to make my seedlings look as good as those.
Be sure to follow us on Facebook for events if you currently aren’t. I hope to see you at the plant sale.
There is always thyme for gardening!
