spring gardening

I’m thinking about spring gardening waaaay ahead of schedule, and I’m not even really a gardener!  However, I have a yard and a little tiny strip of an herb/tomato garden.  I have a woodchuck.  Despite inspiration from Margaret at A Way to Garden, all I’ve been able to figure out is that I need to not plant tomatoes this year to give the ground a rest.  And if I plant parsley and lettuce I’m just feeding the woodchuck.

Spring Gardening Day, hosted by the The Master Gardener Program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia & Greene Counties, is happening Saturday, April 14, 2012.

There will be 16 classes in 3 90-minute sessions.  Some of the classes I’m thinking about are:

  • Gardening with Herbs
  • Shade Gardening with Native & non-Native plants
  • Vegetable Gardening for 2012
  • How to be a Healthy and Happy Gardener Gardening Without Aches, Pains & Injury (hello!)

Pre-paid registration is due by Tuesday, April 3 (that’s practically now!).  The fee is $25 for the day or $10 per session (per person).  You can find more information here.

  • Saturday, April 14, 2012
