Progress on Michael's Dome

 

 

As you can see, we have finished the first plaster coat and have started the asphalt emulsion layer. We are using much more material than anticipated, and will probably require a total of seven 5-gallon cans of it.

 

 

 

 

Community Garden Update

 

 
 
Our garden is growing nicely. There has been a small amount of damage to the melons from rabbits or rats, but very little other pest damage. The ladybugs are prolific as they gorge themselves on aphids on the underside of the broccoli. There have been a few cabbage worms on the broccoli as well, but damage is minimal.
 
 

 

We had a wonderful crop of apricots, as predicted in the last newsletter. They were absolutely delicious! (Nothing left to show!)

 

Other News

More garden news:

  • We fenced in the upper garden to keep the cattle out. They had come in and started nibbling our grapevines and other tasty items. 
  • On the community garden agenda
    • We are hoping for some significant monsoon rains on Sunday the 11th, to ease our watering chores.
