We enjoyed a breezy work night at the garden Monday evening. We spent a couple hours laying cardboard, newspaper, and mulch around the small lantana and neighboring plants in the new butterfly garden. A friendly woman and her two daughters who live in the neighborhood stopped by to help us, and the daughters took home a couple of supple carrots from the garden afterward. The garden is looking really green – the Olmos Creek has received about .18 inches of rain in the last week, and the skies have been quite overcast. Rain is in the forecast for the next week. Our next work day will be Tuesday, May 19, at 7 p.m. If you have any books you've read and would like to donate to our little free library, please stop by the garden. Take the wildflower path to the library at the back of the garden near the shed and leave them there. See you soon!
