Now that spring is here, the grass here at Willow Hall (all three acres of it) is starting to grow again. We're looking for a riding lawnmower for our future caretaker to use to maintain the lawn. Since we're operating on a really tight budget and most foundations don't seem to give out grants for lawn mowers, it would be really great if someone could donate a new or gently used lawn mower to us. The donation is tax-deductible. If you or someone you know might be looking to get rid of a riding mower, call our office at: (973) 532-9830 to talk to Allyson or Susan. Thanks for your help!
We came to work after the weekend rains on Monday to find we had lost one of the property's large white pines. Well, it was really half of a white pine. The tree's other fork is still standing just fine. Fortunately it didn't land on anything else in the yard.
In the bathroom? In anticipation of spring, last week the PRC staff has started some vegetable seedlings in the giant second floor bathroom. Our plantings include: carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, squash, string beans, and tomatoes. You may be wondering where these vegetables will be going once they outgrow their little containers. Well, we're not really sure yet. But rest assured, wherever our gardens grows, it will be surrounded by a very large deer fence.
