The weather has officially turned: winter rains are here. This means slow season at the new Atlin Community Garden.
WATER SHUT OFF
Water has been shut off for first frost and will remain off until the final frost date in spring.
Note that despite the cold weather, the garden will remain open all through the winter. Chances are slim you'll get much growth out of your beds at this time of the year, but feel free to frequent the space any time you like.
GROWING TIPS: MULCHING YOUR BEDS
A leaf layer can help prevent nutrient erosion due to heavy winter rains, and if you've got winter crops or garlic still growing, mulching can insulate plants roots.
Stay dry out there!
