Another Sign of Spring: Master Gardeners & the Legacy Garden #ShareLittleton

Tyler holds up a weed with a foot-long root

It’s yet another sign of spring when the Arapahoe County Master Gardeners first arrive to work with our students in the Legacy Garden. Of course, everything starts with getting the soil ready for planting and, after our spring rains, that means pulling out the eager weeds already leaping up. Tyler, Annette, Abdi, Tucker and Brad took first crack at it on Tuesday. Next week planting begins!

Brad fills a large container with old dead growth and weeds
Abdi uses a hand cultivator to loosen the soil around smaller weeds so he can get the roots

 

Annette uses a spade to dig out some weeds between the irrigation tubing
Tucker uses a weed digger to get right up next to a large rock
