It is now 2014. We are hunkered down when the winds and snows are blowing. Our
gardens are covered in snow. If we put up some of our excess crops, we are still
eating yummy veges that we grew last year. Seed catalogs are starting to arrive and
we are browsing these and starting to think about next years garden.
If you have not reserved a plot for yourself , you may do so now. There are 4
community garden sites in Grand County. Each one has raised beds of varying
sizes, regular automatic watering, good soil and fences to keep the critters out. If you
are new to gardening there are plenty of people at each site, including the site
coordinator, who can give you gardening tips and help you be a successful
gardener. Watch for the announcement of gardening classes in the spring.
