Rabbits spotted in the garden

Sarah Hutt
 

To all,
Some of you may remember the rabbit attack we had a couple of years ago - one has been spotted in the garden so now is the time to secure your garden because there is really no way to protect the entire garden from rabbits.  They are here so PREPARE your garden.  If you do nothing they will eat all your new shoots and leafy greens.

Please check around your garden for rabbit dens - they are starting to have babies so lets stop them before the garden is overrun.  I know they are cute but they are not your friend.  !!!!!!!

Berkeley Gardeners have found using Hardware Cloth Wire with 1/4” holes to effecently keep the rabbits out of gardens.  

Here is a link to the Home Depot site that shows an example of Hardware Cloth https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-1-4-in-x-2-ft-x-25-ft-23-Gauge-Galvanized-Steel-Hardware-Cloth-308212EB/205960834

It is available at any hardware store including the Ace Hardware on Tremont St., Home Depot, and on Amazon.

 The fencing should be buried about 6”  deep (15.24 cm) in an “L” shape with the lower part of the L about 4“ facing into the garden.

Here is a video by our friends at  the Fenway Victory Gardens made a few years ago that shows how to lay out the wire and includes some of their rules and regulations - Please note after making the video they learned the chicken wire holes still let in the smaller rabbits so now recommend the 1/4 Hardware Cloth:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15u4r_KmbCU

If you would like to coordinate with your garden neighbors to lay new fencing or if you are having trouble connecting or need help with translation please respond to this email.

We need help -----------   please email sarah@...
—Help is needed to enforce garden rules concerning height of gardens and cleaning out gardens.  This will including periodic meetings in the garden to identify problem gardens and working with those gardeners to clean up their spaces.

NEW THIS YEAR

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to pressure from our surrounding neighborhood - and new rules from the Trustees you will NO LONGER be able to store anything in your garden that is not related to the immediate task of gardening.  No storage of unused planters, boxes, wire, bike wheels, suitcases, etc……..you must store these things off site.  People that insist on using their garden for storage will be asked to leave.  

YOU ARE allowed to keep buckets of dirt.  We realize many gardeners put a portion of the yearly compost in buckets to build up the soil - we will work with you to set a reasonable bucket limit.   

Over the next few weeks a working committee will be set up to develop a new policy.  If you would like to participate please respond to <info@...>

Gardens will need to be cleaned by April 7th during garden cleanup when we have the dumpster available there will be no exceptions.

For People Not Returning:
In the past anyone that did not pay by the deadline was tracked down to confirm they were leaving.  This was very time consuming and will not be done this year.  If you are putting off paying and miss the date your garden will go into the March 31 Lottery.

If you are not returning please return your gate keys and padlock keys - a small thing but it costs about $20 for keys and padlock for each garden so making copies adds up - recycle them!!!

If you are leaving and want to remove plants or objects from the garden you must do it before March 31 the new lottery garden member will take over the garden plot on that day.

thanks, more info on April 7 cleanup is coming

Hi Danielle,

Jeremy of the Trustees, who usually just does Berkeley for us, took care of everything as our snow team hasn’t gotten out there yet.

 

We shovel the sidewalks only, and no not clear the doorways or any gravel surface.    (Except the main door only to get the snow equipment in and out)

Hello all

With the holidays upon us our Shoveling Team is a little short of help.   

If you would consider helping out please let me know.

The Trustees have agreed to shovel/use our snow blower along E. Berkeley and will also shovel along the Shawmut and Tremont ends of the garden but we are suppose to monitor them and keep them clear since the Trustee help are responsible for all 90 gardens.

We need someone who can check the area, watch the weather and let folks know when it needs to be cleared.
This person can help with the work or just announce what needs to be done to coordinate for others to assist
 - The shovels are in the shed 
- There is a salt spreader in the shed to cover the sidewalks if needed to keep the sidewalk clear  - and a few bags of salt and sand in the shed to add to the 50/50 mix

Anyone that assists gets double hours - and we round up to the next hour so its a good way to clear up your hours for the year.
