It’s still hard to believe September is here.
The DPW finished the retaining wall, moved boulders, prepped the hill and added loam. Today the Generous Gardeners completed stage one of plantings.
DPW has been building a retaining wall to prevent further erosion of the hill, as well as make the parking lot safer, especially in the winter.
A neighbor gave me a “spoon tomato” plant to grow. They’re really cute and easy eating!
Not so hot, nice walking on the boulevard, and great shady spots for lunch. And two new favorite dahlias.
