On Thursday, Rebecca Davis and Joe Harte worked on two of the rain barrelss. One was moved due to access and drainage and the the other leveled to keep it from tipping over in our heavy rains. Please use these whenever you can so they are not so full. Judith Chaddock worked on the indoor plants using the rain barrel on the back porch. Betty Marcus deadheaded throughout the garden, Lori Tamblingson and Sue Ordway both weeded in a variety of areas of the gardens. I spent my time working on removing spreading plants from around the roses, and beginning to clean the compost area.
