Seasonal Round-up for Green Dreamers

By the time October arrives Green Dreamers will be winding down their fourth gardening season in Old Ottawa South. When you see them on the sidewalks and in the public garden beds between the bridges, they will be (most likely) pulling up the dried remnants of milkweed and sunflowers, cutting back some rather thick and reedy perennial growth, raking dried leaves, filling brown bags, ruminating over what went well and what didn’t, and sharing with each other and passers-by bits of information and suggestions for the next growing season in 2018.

Green Dreamers: September Schedule

As mentioned in the last Green Dreamers update, we think that our next big push might be preparing the beds for winter: cutting back, cleaning up, raking leaves, and exchanging ideas for 2018. Fall activity still seems weeks away however a lot will depend on the weather. The nights are growing cooler, the leaves are beginning to change in colour, and the last blooms of late summer are fewer. We've also noticed, by the way, that there has been some independent gardening in assigned gardens, from watering to weeding and even more transplanting. Thank you!
