More harvest before the rain from the MacArthur Heights garden. FIRST TOMATO, yum!
Will any gardeners be gardening this afternoon? You could be on TV :)
I would imagine we need to start relaying some info to each other regarding the weather
The kick-off picnic was lots of fun! I am thrilled to have connected with fellow gardeners, and the bounty of plants shared was INCREDIBLE! These are not run of the mill varieties, but primo, cool heirlooms! Many thanks!:)
Do you have a fruit or nut tree on your street? Know of a mulberry tree that drops berries on the sidewalk of your local park? Walnut or Hickory tree on the corner? Click the link and put Green Bay, WI into the search bar. Add your tree to the local map.
Identify?
I need help to know how to get rid of these beetles eating the leaves of my Apple Trees.
