Cooling Off at 4th & Mac

Cooling Off at 4th & Mac

It's that time of the year again––cool mornings, a break from the smoke, orange tints in the tree leaves. Lucky for us, fall is also a time of bounty and ripeness. Tomatoes, squash and corn are coming into their full colour and sweetness, and the soil is still warm enough to germinate those same cold-hardy seeds you first planted way back in the spring.

Summer Lovin' at 4th & Mac

We have an enormous wait list for the garden and the season for growing is upon us; if you haven't made use of your bed(s) yet, you will receive an email checking in to see if you're still interested in being a part of the garden. Folks on our wait list will have priority on the beds that come available.

Full Swing at the 4th & Mac Garden

The water is flowing through the hoses and there for you to make use of. During hot stretches of 3-4 days, your young plants and seedlings will want a nice dousing. It's often best to water your garden during the 'shoulder' times of the day (early morning/evening) when the sun's heat is less extreme. Water on your veg leaves during midday heat can cause scalding.

Cheers to 2018 at the 4th & Mac Garden

We haven't made the date official yet, but know that this fun garden kick-off event will be scheduled for some time in late March or April. This will be a great opportunity to meet fellow gardeners, break dirt (if you haven't already) and ask us any pressing growing questions. In addition, this event will serve as our official deadline for collecting any outstanding 2018 Garden Fees.
