At the Library

It is a beautiful day to be sitting at my computer looking out the window while I type this article. The grass is looking greener in Central Park thanks to the rain and snow we’ve received. Warmer spring weather is coming, and we will soon watch another month fade from the calendars, as we prepare to plant gardens and flowers.

I once had an avid gardener tell me she always plants her potatoes on Good Friday. I have noticed the sets in the grocery store, so others must agree to this practice. Other early cool season veggies can be planted as well. According to folklore plants grow better and grow more fruit when planted on Good Friday. For some gardeners, planting begins according to the moon, or when maple trees are full of leaves.

How and when you decide to begin, if you could use some help getting ready for your gardening season, we have a nice display of beautiful, informative gardening books located on the second floor. We also have a growing seed exchange library located on the first floor. LeAnn has packaged all the seeds in colorful envelopes with the name of the seed typed on the front. It is a wonderful opportunity to share seeds with other library visitors.

Grow freely at your library.
