Our last meeting was able to be held outdoors, finally. The club assessed the pollinator garden and discovered emerging Black-eyed Susan and cone flower in the main garden. The two smaller gardens are having a slow start due to cool temperatures but even so milkweed was spotted popping up. The main garden is roped off to give it more definition and prevent mowing.
Our lesson, presented by Marianne Novak, gave us information on how to use vegetable scraps to grow new, fresh produce. She used the information from No-Waste Kitchen Gardening, a booklet found at the Putnam County Library in Greencastle.
Gardens are starting to grow and flowers are blooming now that the warmer weather has arrived. We hope to see you at our next meeting, June 9 at 9:30am. We will meet at the clubhouse and carpool to a garden walk. The location is "to be determined".
