WATCH FOR LUSCHER FARM'S TRACTOR IN THE 4th OF JULY PARADE
THE SCARECROWS ARE ALMOST READY - ARE YOU?
They have patiently been waiting all winter and spring in the barn, and thanks to Nancy Sergeant and the Oswego Garden Club are all ready for their favorite time of the year. On Saturday, July 20 the scarecrows will be back on duty with new clothes, faces and themes entertaining visitors and just possibly scaring a bird or two. Sneaky Pete will be in hiding once again, so be watching for him so you can get your "I found Sneaky Pete" sticker.

We are back to our regular schedule of the second Saturday of each month for the rest of the gardening season (July through October).
Saturday, July 13th Rain or shine

Good News - Garden Help Is Available For Hire!!
If you need work done in your plot this year you might consider hiring Luscher Farm's Caretaker, Brice Anderson. Brice is available to do projects you don't want to or aren't able to do yourself. You may contact him directly at 503-313-5478 to discuss details.
Interested in having your plot rototilled?
Working up the soil in a plot that hasn't been active is a back breaking chore! If you bring in some mulch and till it in, you find gardening much more enjoyable. Bring in your own tiller or call me at 503-638-0376. I will make arrangemnts for our caretaker to till your overgrown-weedy plots for $75 or mostly weed-free plots for $50.
