Crystal Hartman Shout out for volunteer coordinator(s) for this Sunday (Jan 31, 12-4) and future Sundays.

I am usually unable to host the Sunday volunteer days and EPP is in need of a few volunteer coordinators who can
See More run the show. We want to keep the Sunday thing going, so please contact me if you are available regularly once or twice a month. Norm has graciously agreed to do the second Sunday of each month.

Crystal Hartman Oh, Lyndall has also offered to do a Sunday or two a month, and she just did one a couple weeks ago. Thanks Lyndall!28.01.2015 at 03:54 amGabriela Waschewsky This Sunday is Feb 1. I'm already committed to teach that day, but AE (after EarthSkills) I can take the first Sunday of each month.28.01.2015 at 10:29 am1view 5 more commentsBrian MonkeySoul Stanton The only reason why we did Sundays is because Michael Adlers religion.... many people have expressed preferences for Saturdays, especially because family and their religious purposes and students getting ready for school. I cant be around for at least another month.28.01.2015 at 01:58 pmCrystal Hartman Thank you Gabriela! I have you down for the first one of the month starting in march. Brian, I will consider switching it to Saturday. Let me confer with those concerned first. Thank you for the suggestion. I however, am usually in Perry each weekend.28.01.2015 at 02:01 pm1Brian MonkeySoul Stanton It would be cool to partner with OSAC, as they have work parties on Fridays at the student gardens. It would be nice to have satellite workshops to expand outreach and accessibility in town to available folks. Also the bus doesnt run Sundays, which has been a constant expressed barrier. Thanks Norm, Crystall, Lyndall, and Gabriela Waschewsky!28.01.2015 at 02:07 pm1Crystal Hartman Brian, OSAC is coming to EPP Sunday Feb 8 for our Project Propagation! Woot woot!28.01.2015 at 02:09 pm2Brian MonkeySoul Stanton Ya, we have kept a good relationship w them, especially the past officers. Kristin Balko is very knowledgeable and involved. If you have any innovative partnership ideas. Wilmot gardens has a propagation greenhouse. If we could forge an alliance it would be awesome to have a bldg core of volunteers and leaders. Michael Adler had presented to the Master Gardeners and I Wendy Wilbur and I have talked about getting them involved, as they are at Wilmot and other locales.28.01.2015 at 02:14 pm

Cherry of the Rio Grande (Eugenia aggregata)


This Cherry Tree (Eugenia aggregata)  grows as a narrow evergreen shrub, 10-20 ft high.
It flowers in the spring and summer. Flowers are followed in three weeks by 1-2″ oblong, dark- red/purple fruits that are sweet, have a thin skin and a single seed.
Cherry of the Rio Grande tolerates a wide range of soils, but can show signs of mineral deficiency in calcareous/basic soils, preferring those with a pH in the range of 5.5-6.8.
New plants should be lightly fertilized with a magnesium containing fertilizer that has a 1-1-1 ratio.
Fruit size and quality is largely a function of proper nutrition and irrigation.
Mature plants should be fertilized with an 8-3-9 with 5% MgO. Mineral deficiencies can be corrected with foliar sprays.
Cherry of the Rio Grande is cold hardy to 20 degrees.
Plant in full sun or part shade. It can be container grown.
The plant can survive droughts well, but will fruit poorly during them. Seedlings often take five years to fruit.
The fruit is eaten fresh or made into a jelly or jam.
