Mad dogs, Englishmen, and, apparently, members of Bound by Beauty are out in the midday sun. You can see from our rosy cheeks and noses, not to mention the glistening sweat, that we worked hard today to prepare the bed for the planting of the pine rockland plants on Saturday. Lucky for us, we love doing what we do!
So what did we do? We removed the plastic tarp that was solarizing the bed, then started sculpting a pine rockland, using coral rocks donated by members of the community. We just may have created the highest point in Miami Shores!
Then, we took the plants donated by Fairchild Garden's Protect to Connect Network and other generous folks, and placed them in a mockup of the garden to come. We thought it looked pretty good!
Last, but not least, we took the potted plants to the shade, where they will await the moment when their roots can stretch out into the soil.
Come join us on Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Miami Shores Community Church for the planting and a celebration of Miami Shores' Community Garden. Bring your lawn chairs and favorite beverages, and join your neighbors in the relative cool of a summer evening. We look forward to seeing lots of friends and neighbors!
