Important 2014 Garden Dates

A photo from last year's tag sale
Among the things addressed at the garden meeting this past Saturday were dates for the upcoming tag sale and bulb sale. 

Tag Sale: The Summit Street Garden Tag Sale is Saturday, June 21 from 10 am to 3 pm (rain date: Sunday, June 22). So when you're spring cleaning, do it with the tag sale in mind. In addition to seasonal clothing, books and household goods, we can also sell some baked goods if anyone wants to make them. 

Last year's sale was a success.

Some gems from last year's sale.
Bulb Sale: Last year's Bluegrass Blues Bulb Bake Bonanza was such a success that we're having another this year, on Saturday, October 18. Below are some images by Gardener Sondra from last year's extravaganza.

Garden Tutorial and Informal Workday on May 4

A message from Gardener Claire:  I’m doing garden hours on Sunday – if anyone wants to come over for a while to help with border work, learn about the plants that are emerging like crazy and/or help with pruning some perennials and shrubs, please come over anytime between 12 and 4 pm. There will be plenty more border work to do at an official workday, but there’s also plenty to do before then.
