M&M!: Frontier Culture Museum

We think we have picked a site which will be visited by people birding, walking dogs, and field trip buses. This site is at the entrance to the “Bluebird Trail” along the driveway to the museum on the left side. It should get full sun. Some limestone is evident nearby, but we tried to choose an area which we could dig in. Kathy has generously volunteered her husband and his earth moving equipment to prepare the plot! – Ann Murray, February 2015

April 2015

Kathy mulched the rest of the Frontier Culture garden and Ann planted Blue Dogbane, Obedient Plant, Whorled Coreopsis, New England Aster, Sundrops, and Woodland Sunflower, which Chris picked out for us at the Native Plant sale during Earth Day Staunton. We also planted some caterpillar food- carrots, dill, fennel seed. Let’s see if Coneflowers, Bee Balm, and Borage seed can germinate there! The soil at that garden is heavy clay and may need some sand and organic matter to lighten it up. – Ann, April 27
