Planning a garden for next year?

After a year off of gardening I am already planning for next year. I have gotten several catalogs and after this crazy holiday season ends I will be placing some orders! Dreaming of all the fresh possibilities definitely keeps me warm during these cold dark winter days. I love pouring over all the wonderful descriptions, learning new planting techniques- like did you know that before you plant sunflower seeds you should put them in the freezer first, something about the cold helps them germinate. How cool is that!
A few months back a couple of friends asked if I would help them plan their produce garden. I was so excited about the opportunity that I mentioned it to a couple other friends and before you knew it I was in the midst of planning a class! So now I would like to extend the invitation to you!

Are you interested in growing your own produce, but just aren't sure where to begin? We will talk about preparing your plot, buying seeds, and caring for your plants. Besides learning about gardening with will be a great opportunity to connect with others who share similar interests. Join us on Saturday January 21st from 2pm until 4pm at McPete's in Big Lake. If you have any questions please feel free to shoot me an email.

Hope to see you there!
