The good news is that every tree, shrub and many herbaceous plants we planted last fall is thriving - everything has leafed out. All the rain we have had really stimulated growth.
The bad new is that the weeds are also thriving. So we will need your help again this season to get the weeds out. The date for this work is Saturday, June 2nd. It should take only a few hours or less if with half a dozen volunteers.
