Dear Gardeners,
Starting to look like a real garden out there with rows of new plants coming up in the ample rain and the trees and bushes leafing out. Many birds are flying past with nest materials.  Look for the northern orioles.  We usually have a couple of nests of these bright orange and black birds on the edges of the Eagle Heights gardens. I've already seen three pairs building nests (hanging woven bags on far branches of trees).  They have a lovely song. Lots of lemon yellow goldfinches around too.
This Sunday, we have the plant sale at Eagle Heights from 11 am to 1 pm. We expect tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and herbs. Check out the list we were given in Jenn's blog on the website. These are organically raised plants and we have been happy with the quality and prices. There is parking on Eagle Heights Drive (marked for gardeners) and the plant sales will be near the shed.
We also hope to have compost, but this is weather dependent. With luck, we will be selling compost from the West Madison Agricultural Station that is made from the barn manure and food waste from campus. Our past deliveries have been great stuff (very professionally and fully composted) and we sell it at cost ($3 for a half-cart load). All sales will be at Eagle Heights from 11 am to 1 pm.
