Mulching

Another glorious morning at the Yoorala St Community Garden – Brisbane, for the Orchard and Fruit Fly POD Working Bee.  We were missing our facilitator, as Stewart has stepped done, but we got organised with the help of all who came along.

Working Bee Jobs:

  • Watering of all trees
  • Weeding and Mulching of the western end of the communal Orchard.

Keep an eye out for the new ‘watering flags‘ made by Stewart in the Orchard. Two small white flags on a stick will indicate the area most recently watered area.  When watering in the Orchard please move the flags to the area just watered.

Winter produce continues to flourish in the garden despite, frosts, cold temperatures and lack of rain.

Here is Deb’s  super-size Broccoli !
