Since this is our last meeting until January 21 what better topic than getting our gardens ready for the 2-3 months that we have coming up. That does not mean that our gardens or plants have stopped growing or evolving so it is our job to get things set up for healthy development and ready for the new growing season.
What am I talking about? There is still a lot going on under the soil during the winter. Many roots are still growing, bulbs are getting set, in some cases they are actually looking forward to the cold so that they come back in full splendor next spring.
Worms, insects and bacteria are still doin' their thing during this time, so what can we do to help then along or stop them, in the case of the bad guys? Stop by and we'll talk about it.
No officers, no dues, just friends and neighbors talking about our mutual love, gardening.
