Alpharetta Community Garden “Opening Work Day”

C Garden - Dressed in PinkLast Saturday brought beautiful (if not a bit chilly) weather for Saturday’s “Opening Work Day” at the Alpharetta Community Garden. These little ladies, dressed in pink, were there to jump right in!

And much work was done by all who attended.

Planting beds were cleared of last year’s growth, grass was mowed,

Mulch was applied to insulate newly planted beds, and errant weeds were pulled – all to make way for the new season’s transplants, just waiting to be planted.

Warm weather will soon be on order each and every day here, so this refreshingly cool day was enjoyed by those of us who know that soon, very soon….Spring will allow Summer to take over. With it comes those hot, dry days that will encourage the season’s crops to dig in deep and produce the tasty results that we all are looking forward to enjoying later in the season.

  1. What a great garden & so much more fun when you’re doing gardening with others. Tell me though, were those cute little girls’ pink coats still mostly pink when they were done because I know what I look like after digging around in the garden 🙂


    • Those little ladies did “prissy gardening” so none of that laying in the dirt, digging with the fingernails, etc etc that you or I would do…no, Missy! They looked just as spiffy once finished as they did whence they commenced. Adorable!
