Dirt Divas

New to the area? What grows here? Do deer really eat everything? Where do I buy plants? Oh so many questions. I am forming a casual group to learn about growing plants in the area and the resources we have here for help. An idea is attending the Master Gardener’s FREE workshops. There are also Home Food Preservation Classes this year including canning, freezing and dehydrating, colorful pickles to name a few. I think seasoned gardeners will enjoy learning a few new things and, more importantly, seasoned gardeners can offer advice to the NEWCOMERS.
