Please join us for the third in a series of discussions and classes based on group requests. If you are still learning to identify the business end of the spade, come listen and learn from those more seasoned. For those well-seasoned, please come share your knowledge and experience.
Session 3 will focus on Container Gardening, with a set-up demonstration of the Garden Patch Grow Box:
The guest speaker for the evening will be Gary Byrdman. Gary has also graciously volunteered to host a June event in his home garden, for a before and after look at what containers can contribute to a space.
Garden Grow was kind enough to provide me with a sample box for you to see how it works and brochures with many pictures. I will also post pictures here later of my other box that is already planted and and I am harvesting already. I will also have some some handouts about small space gardening and ways to garden even if you only have very limited space and ground. There are ways to even make hydroponic planters if you can not afford a commercial version.
If time permits we will learn how to make newspaper containers to start off your seedlings. Even if you have a large garden, there are still many advantages to having a small herb or lettuce garden near your kitchen door. I am also growing strawberries by container and will be eating fresh strawberries in about a week, and will post some pictures of that also. Last year I tried to grow hot peppers in a hanging container and was pleasantly surprised how many peppers I harvested .
There should be time for questions and answers and sharing of your experiences which is the part I enjoy about this great group. Not sure what will be in season, but will make something (to eat) to share with the group.
Looking forward to sharing my experiences.
