How are your Victory Gardens 2020 coming along?
Greetings Roaring Fork Valley Gardeners!
Cathy Click, here. Our vegetable plot at home is mixed: something with a delicate palate is happily devouring all our attempts at lettuce. Not kale, not radishes, but the really pretty light green butter and mesclun lettuce. I’m thinking that pots might be the answer there.
The Library still has plenty of seeds available! In addition to a few more Victory Garden variety packs, we have piles of beans and herbs. And squash, melons, and greens. If you are looking for additions to your own vegetable garden, please contact the Library, and we’ll get it to you if we have it. Below is an abbreviated list of ready-to-go seeds.
You may notice the dates stamped by the supplier of our seeds, Lake Valley. Some say 2018 or 2019. We checked with Lake Valley and they assure us the seeds have an 75-80% germination rate for this year. So please, try some new varieties! Let us know what you are in the mood for! Contact the Seed Library at (970) 927-4311 x 1000 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will let you know when the seeds are ready to be picked up through Curbside Takeout. There is no limit to the number of seed packets you can take home, so come and get them—it's not too late to plant your garden!
