For the spring of 2014 we will begin on Saturday, March 1st, which isn’t all that far away. Everything grew really well last year and we harvested many varieties of tomatoes, basil, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers and more. Cantaloupes worked very well too. Last year we tried early carrots, pakchoi and peas before the main summer crops; something we should try again. We also grew artichokes at the greenhouse for planting at the Garlic Co-op site.

The Greenhouse Group had good participation with new members joining throughout the season.

Everyone is welcome to jump-start the Gardening year in the community greenhouse.
Soil making, seed planting, transplanting, knowledge sharing and general puttering in the warm greenhouse at the school are on the agenda. Ideas currently being explored involve: cuttings, propagation, and medicinals.
Activities for the next Saturday session will be planting early starts and soil testing for PH. Bring some of your own soil samples! Please bring seeds to swap, and any extra seed trays you have.

All are welcome to jump-start the New Year right with an early start to your Gardening year.  Our first meeting will plan our growing space with seed catalogs and your own seeds to swap and share.  

Last year we had a really successful Spring Starts group, and we hope to do that again this year. If you hope to be a part, please join us at our first information meeting. We are meeting on Saturday Feb 23, 1 pm at the Greenhouse behind the School.

The seed starting group got off to a solid start on March 4th with our first plantings of the season. Initial attendance went from 7 participants to a total of ten participants by the end of the month. At March’s first meeting, seed starting soil and soilless mixes, their components and purposes were discussed. The agreed upon recipe was made up in a large enough batch for everyone to plant their seeds. The initial planting included parsely, celery, fennel, onions of various types and leeks.

Just a reminder that our next seed starting meeting is this Sunday, April 1st at 1pm at the community greenhouse up at the school.
We will be planting early tomatos, second rounds of brassica (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage) and all kinds of greens and late peppers/eggplants. Please bring your seeds and washed containers and trays.

Members who have taken trays home to germinate are asked to bring the shared trays of successfully growing transplants back to the greenhouse and we will share the plants around with other members and look at transplanting anything that requires it.
