Greetings Garden for Life friends and fans

 
Thank you-- Grow your Own Part 2: Herb Cultivation and Use
Thank you to Cathy Hansgate, Ladybug Farm Produce, for a terrific presentation last week on Herb Cultivation and Uses, with helpful handouts of the best 10, shady herbs, recipes, photos of the farm and even herb butter to taste with crackers! The room was packed, and we enjoyed a lively conversation. I will scan some of the handouts and send to attendees.

THINKING SPRING?

RAY/GREEN PLANET RED WIGGLERS ORDER:  Wonder how you can grow strong seedlings and plants...and therefore reduce pests and disease?? Experienced growers say we need to be pro-active in feeding seedlings at key times in their growth to make them strong and resilient when it comes to pests.  

 

Place your order for red wigglers to pick up at the Compost Tour on May 8.  Your garden will thank you! The very thing to make compost tea to feed your seedlings.
