Spring is in the air (well, not quite with Friday’s snow) but nevertheless, Ewing gardeners’ thoughts have been turning to their gardens.  Registration for plots has begun and turn out has been good.   There is still a lot to do to prepare for the gardening season and we are now into the final push to get things ready.  Things to do this month include signups for plots, the March 20th monthly meeting, the March 23rd Site Cleanup, and starting your seeds.  Read on for the details.

Garden Expansion

We have been working with the Township on the expanded gardens on Whitehead Road Extension.  As many of you know already know, theTownship promised to expand the garden space this year and the number of plots will be almost doubled. Mayor Bert Steinmann also promised to supply another water source that will be needed by the newly enlarged gardens at the January 2013 Green Team meeting.

Signups

Signups for plots for the 2013 gardening season began on March 1st.
■Gardeners who had plots in 2012 and before could register beginning March 1st.
■New registrants can register beginning March 15th.

Please note that the new expanded section is designated organic.

Garden Site Cleanup Date – March 23rd

There will be a site cleanup day on Saturday, March 23rd from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Approximately 24 student volunteers from TCNJ will be on site to assist with clean up of last year’s materials and to begin to lay out the paths for this season. The township will have tree chippings delivered to the site for the paths. All participating gardeners are encouraged to attend and bring cardboard and newspaper to put beneath the tree chips to suppress the weeds.

The Township will plow the plots as soon as the weather permits. The official opening day of the gardening season is set for April 15th. Gardeners will be notified if the date is earlier.

There are still quite a few organizational details to work out for the gardens this season.  From contests to food donations, from garden guidelines to organic guidelines.  Come to the March 20th meeting to help flesh out the details.  We are also looking for volunteers to organize the garden contests and more.
