This past Saturday we were joined by a group of volunteer from the University of Virginia as part of Cav’s Care through Madison House. Together we continued the work of readying the garden beds for spring planting and weeding the native plant beds. It was just the kind of beautiful morning that makes being outdoors so wonderful. Singing birds, springy soil, and just the right shade of blue in the sky. Buds were swelling and leaves unfurling, all in a silent ode to the wonders of life. Pretty soon those first asparagus will be ready to reveal themselves.
We also planted early(ish) potatoes. Thank you to all the bright and cheerful volunteers who came out Saturday. It was a pleasure spending the morning with you!
