Open House at the Demo Garden, Saturday May 7, 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Elaine preparing beds for planting

The VegHeadz are busy getting ready for the Open House on May 7.   Spring vegetables are growing well, and the perennial edibles are beginning to make an appearance.  They usually look their best during summer and fall. 

We'll be selling cuttings from some of our perennial vegetables at the plant sale, and seedlings from our beautiful fall-blooming sunflowers.  There'll be lots of other plants for sale also. 

Come stroll through the six horticulture gardens, xeriscape garden (no water), fruit orchard, and much more.  Exhibits, bee hives, refreshments, music.  All for your enjoyment.

In vegetable garden we'll be showing off our spring and summer vegetables in conventional rows, raised beds, square foot, hydroponic, and container gardens.   Master Gardeners and Extension Agents will be on hand throughout the gardens to guide you and answer questions.   Come join us in the garden on May 7.  We look forward to seeing you.
