Time to get Planting!

 

When I started typing this update in the morning, it read “The weather has certainly taken a turn for the better.” Then the thunder came, and I thought I was going to have to change the tone of this entry. And yet, shortly after the thunder, we’re back to sun. Ahh, Yukon weather…wait five minutes and see what you get.

Thunder and rain aside, we are heading into summer. The grass is greening up, the trees are sharing pollen with us (whether we want them to or not), and this Saturday is Planting Day. Yes, it’s a bit later than previous years, but our Gardener, Ryan, wanted to give the plantlings their best shot at not getting frost-bitten.

As in previous years, volunteers for Planting Day meet at the Town Office parking lot at 10:00am on Saturday June 15. Bring your own gloves and planting equipment if you have them, as selection is limited. Be prepared for all weather conditions, as we will be planting rain or shine ^_^

Also on the 15th, the Anvil Range Arts Society is having a Fun Festival at the Gallery, starting at 1:00pm. They will be running workshops and demos between 1:00-5:00pm, with a free barbecue at 5:30!

Sunday the 16th is Father’s Day, and it’s also the Plant Sale. The Sale starts at 10:00am at the Greenhouse behind the Public Works building on McQuesten Road.

Have a great week, everybody!
