Water is on the way!
Due to success with our recent flower bulb fundraiser, and some generous donations, we are in the process of getting our new water line installed! Gardeners Rhonda Krebs, Stefka Sibbett, and I, with the help of John Webster, met at the garden this morning with our shovels and mattocks to dig the trench for the new line from the meter to a spot in the garden. Local plumber and nice guy Terry Claiborne will be by to install our new line next week when he returns from vacation.
Despite hitting some tree roots and hard clay soil, the four of us managed to get it done in about an hour, saving a bunch of money since the plumber won't have to do any digging.
(Digging is hard work. Here's Rhonda taking a break.)
The hole has been covered and roped off to keep anyone who is walking by safe from falling in.
We still have a few plots available, but several have expressed interest. Looks like we might have a full garden this year!
