Our friends in the Kawarthas, NatureCures, are undergoing a large move and need help transplanting their beds this June!
Several plots of vegetables and flowers in high grade 100% organic beds are threatened. They are in immediate need of being moved to the new location.
NatureCures will provide Free trips for people who want to help with the transplanting. All transportation from Toronto area and back plus food and accommodation will be provided. Tent space also available, and camping is encouraged.
Length of stay will be one night with a second night optional.
You will also have the opportunity of networking with Keith Taylor, an expert in permaculture farming, and access to all organic produce and seeds for this season.

I have a tuberose that was purchased as a bulb this spring. It never bloomed (though it almost did in my kitchen recently). Would it be best to let it go dormant (or take it out of the soil) and let it try again this spring? How do I best accomplish this ?
This local gardener needed to hang the extension ladder on her wall where it has been turned to good use as a shelve for pots filled with herbs. The herbs enjoy the warmth from the sun on the brick wall and the ladder gets a new use while awaiting its next job!
