May 2015 Newsletter
While the first day of May will still be cold the very next day the weather warms up and we start heading into some glorious gardening days. Sunday, May 2, looks like a good day to plant out the starts that you have been hardening off. Remember to transplant your tender starts on a cloudy or partially cloudy day.
We’ve had some interesting programs at Fowler lately. Ben Barkan of Home Harvest talked to us about our soil and then we learned from Francey Slater of Mill City Grows how to have a pest free organic garden. Now it’s time to start thinking about planting and that leads us to seed saving.
We will be offering a basic seed saving workshop this summer. Because plants don’t usually go to seed until the end of the season, this workshop will most likely be in late August or early September. We would also love to know what other kinds of programs you would like to see at Fowler. Send your suggestions to our email at email@example.com.
Please send us pictures and stories about how your garden grows with the seeds you borrowed from the Concord Seed Lending Library. We’ll share them on our Facebook and website.
