Spend a sunny (we hope) Sunday afternoon in the garden. Visit a community garden and see what's growing now as summer crops are done and winter crops are starting up. Learn about what you can grow when. Bring your garden questions.
We can tour the garden from noon to 1:30 or so and then share a potluck picnic lunch.
Tanya Kucak will lead us and explain what is happening in her garden at this time of year. She shared this link about what you can grow when:
As you can see, onions and garlic are ok for November, and greens are iffy. In Jan. you can start seeds in pots, and in Feb. plant a few vegetables.
More details from Tanya:
The garden tour starts at 12 noon. Note that daylight savings time ends early Sunday morning, and if you arrive late you may need to search for parking.
Let's meet at my garden plot. The community garden is on the other side of the parking lot, and a mulched path circles it. To get to my plot, start at the parking lot. Facing the temporary library, walk along the right side of the parking lot until you see the chain-link fence delimiting the construction site. Turn right so that the fence is on your left, and follow the mulched path under the trees and between the gardens. When you see a huge rubble pile on your left and a garden gate on your right, look for the group. When everyone has arrived, we can start meandering around the 2.5-acre garden, and then come back to my garden plot.
For the picnic afterwards, there are two big picnic tables right outside the garden, in full sun. If you need utensils or plates, bring them. I'll make some sun tea with mint, lemon balm, etc. from my garden.
Bring a hat and sunscreen if you need them.
