I've also been introduced to a possible job and the University of British Colombia Botanical Gardens as a shop manager. It sounds like a great position and I think I'm very well qualified. The only negative is that I'll have to drive right across the city each day. Fortunately, we were planning on moving the end of the summer anyway so we could just relocate closer.
Stevie from Garden Therapy also forwarded my resume to two companies which I really appreciate. Thanks!
In the Community Garden, the seedlings are growing well. Everything has sprouted. I noticed a few dog treads crushing some of my spinach which pissed me off a little. But then I took a few deep breathes and... everything was fine! Now there was a rage blackout somewhere in there but I have no idea what happened or if anyone/thing was harmed.
I've also been asked to border a large plot with stones. There aren't very many left in the area and Stevie pointed me to some large concrete chunks. They actually look quite good and offer a home for what otherwise would be garbage. They're a bit sharp though so if anyone comes to Cottonwood, make sure to wear shoes.
I would love to make a willow structure at Cottonwood. Does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations? Maybe where we could grab some willow twigs?
I was too lazy to type out the germination info so I just took pictures. In 5 - 10 years I'll have a jungle!
