What Ray’s Been Up To!

Ray_at_Guerilla_Garden_Cafe_2014
Ray not only hates the uniform this year but says he will not under any circumstances work at the Guerilla Garden Cafe next year! He says there are rats running around and they were the ones that ate all the peas and the corn. My husband is less than enthused about this as it means Ray will probably be hanging out all unemployed on our back porch again this winter.

Ray with Dirtbag

Ever since the Guerilla Gardener has found a new job it seems like Ray has been hanging out with some dirtbags from Little Mountain Greenhouses. Coincidence? I think not.

Ray and Nadine Hanging out

Ray has been seen hanging out with Nadine on the Guerilla Gardener’s back porch. He looks a little green and she looks like she could be a bad influence. Ray says he is just trying to get her to sign up for a community garden plot. Let’s hope he gets it together for the Spring Opener at the Sunshine Community Garden on May 24th!

Ray Missing Poster

Ray is missing. Is he on holidays? Is he visiting relatives? Hopefully he will be back soon as spring is almost here and there is a lot of work to be done at the Sunshine Community Garden.

2nd Place Pumpkin_2013

Ray and Brenda Dyck from the Guerilla Garden Cafe at the Sunshine Community Garden in Chilliwack came in 2nd place for the largest pumpkin at 74.2 pounds. Not bad considering that the pumpkin plants weren’t planted until July. I guess that is why they call them Atlantic Giants!

You can’t tell by the picture but this pumpkin is huge!
The seeds came from the seed kit that Ray received when he entered the
Operation Pumpkin Patch contest at the Sunshine Community Garden.

Oh Ray!
I know crap happens but how much organic fertilizer did you use!

Things are filling out nicely at Ray’s Community Plot at the Sunshine Community Garden!

Operation Pumpkin Patch Plot #20 is ready for planting!
It’s pretty late in the season and the soil has so much clay in it that on a dry day you almost need a jack hammer to try and turn the soil over. When it gets wet it’s like shoveling cement. Instead of doing the back breaking labor of improving the entire 9x25ft plot, a husband was recruited to dig a trench and 3 large holes and fill them full of crap!  A “Guerilla Garden Suspect” then planted some corn in the crap filled trench across the back of the plot and Ray has been doing some calculations  for how many pumpkin plants per crap filled hole will be needed.

Ray's Sunshine Community Garden Plot - May 2013

Ray has set up his plot at the Sunshine Community Garden like a square foot garden but no one has seen him.
I wonder if there are seeds planted in the empty spots?

Guerilla Gardener Shopping Trip

There was confirmed  Ray sighting of him on  shopping spree with a “Guerilla Garden Suspect” and the“Pallet Gardener” at Devon Greenhouses.

Ray rented a plot at the Sunshine Community Garden and has yet to do anything with it. However, there is a rumor of a planned plant shopping spree at Devon Greenhouses for later in the month.
