Spring is here, which means Mother’s and Father’s Days are right around the corner! Need a last-minute gift idea for a favorite parental figure in your life? On April 26th, I will be hosting Project Maker: Mason Jar Planters at the Poulsbo Library from 3:30-5pm in our Community Room. Kitsap Regional Library is offering a similar program for adults, but the one at Poulsbo is particularly aimed at kids.
“Plant a little seed,
Watch it grow,
Soon we will have a vegetable.”
--- Nancy Stewart
When the sun came out yesterday, Nancy Stewart’s song began running through my head and I started thinking about planting a vegetable garden. Although I’ll wait a couple of weeks to make sure that there won’t be another frost, I can begin planning now.
If the daffodils, cherry blossoms, and tulips sprouting everywhere didn’t convince you, then last weeks’ beautiful warm weather must have shown that spring is officially here. And what’s a better way to spend spring outside than gardening? I may only have a balcony with container planters instead of a yard with a garden, but I’m still itching to plant tomatoes, carrots, and green beans. While it may still be a bit early for planting vegetables, it’s not too early to start preparing your garden—and your little gardener—for what’s to come.
