Personalizing Your Plot
This year will mark the 3rd growing season that we have participated in the Ruby Garden and tended a plot. We get so much joy out of growing plants and vegetables that this year we decided we were going to personalize our space with some fun garden accessories, including a lovely custom sign with our names on it.
Jan, from Metal Garden Arts, has some great designs both custom and standard that might be a fun way for you to personalize your plot. Here is her website link so you can peruse all that she has available. And here's another one.
Of course there are other fun ways to personalize your plot. What will you pick? Feel free to share your ideas with the group on some fun and unique ways to make your plot your home. Happy Growing!

p.s. Keep in mind that plots are not guaranteed from year to year, so don't get anything that will be installed permanently. Also, we don't recommend spending a lot of money because you are leaving it in a public place.
It's Getting Warmer...
We are getting very excited about this gardening season, and today it feels like seedlings may start pushing their little heads through the soil, if they haven't already.
One of our Master Gardeners in the garden this weekend noticed a plotholder had cleaned their plot but put the refuse material over the fence instead of bringing it to the compost. In addition, the plotholder cleaned the border and removed plants from there, including some peas or sweet peas that someone had sowed. The Master Gardener felt it was obvious that something was growing there.
We all work hard to grow plants from seed and plant carefully and make our garden a wonderful place. So a few things to remember as we start to garden:

Welcome to our new website!
We've worked hard to make the Ruby Garden a wonderful community garden and center for growing, sharing, and camaraderie. Now we're entering our third year and trying to establish a long term presence on all fronts. We've just put up this website as another portal with which you can communicate with us, share your thoughts, ask questions, gather information or learn more about Ruby Garden.
Please feel free to comment or share your thoughts. Let us know if you have ideas about the garden or the website, if you have pictures to share, experiences, or anything at all.
