You have less then 24 hours for this one.

Sunnyside Nursery Near Marysville is having a free How To Grow Veggies class at the Nursery. The master Gardners that own this Nursery are fun AND smart.

Oh no .....you missed it!



Turns out the people teaching it were SFG's! Bummer for you.

Besides learning things like don't let your tomatoes have any stem foliage for the first foot to prevent that awful wilt that has them looking healthy at night and brown and wilty at night (is is a soil born sickness) and to not let potatoes and tomatoes grow in the same neighborhood for the same reason (potatoes are carriers). You also missed how to grow asparagus in a SFG (or other ways). You didn't get to learn about a local group that makes compost with seed meals, alfalfa meal, bat guano, and lots of other good, balanced garden goodies. You didn't get to learn about the Church in town that has a garden patch going for the hungry and how gardeners in the area donated mega pounds of fresh produce that put the local farmers and grocery stores to shame.

Then there was this.....


Salad greens in a sieve. There were all kinds of greens set into sieves. They don't think any of us can do this because all they have shopped all the local 2nd hand stores for all the sieves they could find.



Spinach. Lettuce and radishes in the background



Now this is kewl! a ring covered with sphagnum moss, filled with soil and backed with screen. Lettuce was slipped into the moss to grow in the soil. A BBQ snip your own. Flowers in the center are optional. Why don't I ever come up with stuff like that?

Deborah ….transplanted tomatoes to soothe the itch.
