After sending out an invitation to join-in to the local garden/plant groupsas well as to the general public on social media, we all gathered on one ofthe very few sunny days we had this Spring and shared with other plants,tools, equipment, seeds and all kinds of plants.  We had flowers,vegetables, succulents, herbs and houseplants.Example of plants &/or seeds that were purchased for this event:Herbs:  parsley, dill, basil, thyme, chamomile, oregano, nasturtiumVegetables (some a variety of each):  lettuce/leafy greens, beans, peas,cucumbers, kale, swiss chard, tomatoes, peppers, squash, spinach, greenonions,Flowers:  petunias, lobelias, coleus, marigolds/several varieties, snapdragons, verbenaI encouraged everyone to bring what they had to share that was garden orplant-relatedindoor and outdoor.  The response was fantastic!!  As everyone arrived andunload what goodies they brought we spread items out amongst all the otheritems that were purchased with the Grant Funds.  It reminded me of ForestGrump famous saying“My mama always said, life is like a box of chocolates. You never know whatyou’re gonna get”.  This was so true and so many went home with so manygoodies to plant and reap the rewards in the Fall.We also had in attendance some very experienced gardeners that were veryknowledgeable and helped out with questions of all kinds.With Covid-19 Pandemic still very much around I encourage everyone to wear amask even though we are outside but it was not mandatory.Was an extremely, fun-filled and successful event.
