Welcome Spring! May is our busiest month of our Garden Club year. The uptown beds need to be cleaned up and I hope everyone will lend a hand. The beds need to be cleaned and planted by May 20when we do the mulch. Rain date for the mulch is May 21. Our Conservancy planting is May 19 around noon. We will have more discussion at our May 11 meeting. Here's an amusing definition I found in a garden dictionary: "Green Thumb: Common condition suffered by gardeners in which the skin of the thumb develops a greenish hue as the result of handling large amounts of currency at nurseries."
