After we completed our garden preseason prep work on Sunday, we randomly drew lots to assign plots for the 2013 growing season. Open the attached spreadsheet to see the location of your plot.
Row 1 in the garden is nearest to Third Street. Row 17 is farthest away. Aisle A is closest to the front of the garden, the side where the gate is located. where the gate is located, Aisle B is in the center and Aisle C in the back. If you're unclear where your plot is, please ask. One thing on our to-do list is painting row and aisle numbers on the planting beds.
We typically do not like to switch plots at this point. That said, if two gardeners agree to swap plots, the executive committee will consider it. Contact us via comments below or e-mail and we can discuss.

We're eager to get growing in the garden this season. However, we've got some work to do to get ready for the season. Here are some dates to reserve as we get ready for the season ahead.
March 9, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Village Hall: Garden class with gardening experts from Rutgers Cooperative Extension. Learn how to get the most out of your garden plot this summer. Garden experts will teach you what to plant, when to plant it, how to care for it and how to handle common garden problems. This mandatory class is free to all registered community gardeners.
March 16-17, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the garden: Preseason Work Days: All gardeners should come out and be prepared to work. We will be mulching paths in the garden to stop weeds, clearing leaves and other debris left from the winter, making repairs to the garden structures and more. We can't open the garden for planting until all the work is done.
March 23-24, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the garden: Complete any additional garden prep work. When the work is complete, we will hand out individual garden plot assignments and you'll be free to begin working on your plot.
