Dig Day® is Yellow Tractor’s term for the actual garden site installation. Depending on best planting dates for your garden zone, date options are provided by Yellow Tractor and chosen by contracting groups. Chicagoland Dig Days® therefore are generally scheduled from the last week of May, for spring and summer planting, through the end of August or early September for fall harvests. Dig Days® typically run 4½ hours, depending on the number of sites, workforce size and project scope. They are designed by and executed with the assistance of Yellow Tractor personnel and our Master Gardener site coordinators. All necessary Dig Day® supplies and materials, including Yellow Tractor garden bed kits, soil and plants, are secured at Yellow Tractor™ discounts and delivered safely to the site 1 – 3 days prior to the project execution. Plants are supplied according to cultural preference, participant requests and availability. Rain barrels, composting systems, trellises, garden trowels, gloves and all other requested supplies and materials are available depending on site needs and budgets. Upon completion of every Yellow Tractor Dig Day®, garden participants have hands-on experience, all necessary garden tools and will continue, for one year, free of charge, to receive The Garden Scoop®.
