Looking Good

The Master Gardeners were out volunteering at the Weld County Fair this week.  While out there a few volunteers worked in the garden to get it ready for our ribbon cutting this coming Sunday, the 29th at 1:00 pm.  It’s looking so nice.

Recently someone asked why there were so many weeds in the garden.  It had recently hailed.  One of those close your eyes and hope for the best type hails.  Lots of plants were damaged and shredded.  It takes at least two weeks to determine what is a weed and what is a plant in some cases.  The plants were just recovering and so were the weeds.  Fortunately the damage to the garden was minimal.  All of the weeds are gone now and it’s looking lovely.

Here’s a  PlantTalk article about hail.

We hope to see all of you at our ribbon cutting Sunday, July 29th at 1:00 pm in front of the exhibition building at Island Grove Park.  It’s the last day of the fair so come on out and check out all the exhibits and join us for the ribbon cutting.  Parking and admission are free.
