March is full steam ahead for garden preparation and for early planting. Lavender Fields, a local organic herb farm, is organizing an interesting 'Show and Tell' project for those with vegetable and herb gardens. Those who participate have will be considered for one of three $100 gift certificates their farm. They have lovely organically grown herbs and vegetables, as well as tools, classes, raised bed kits, and soil amendments. The contest calls for a photo of your vegetable garden from early March, the keeping of a gardening journal till the end of May, followed by a final photo at that time. If you are interested, check out their website for more information. It is clearly a good way for them to get information on the gardening needs of potential customers, but it could also be a great way for you to learn from your own gardening journal as well as those of the other participants.
Also, check out information on their one hour gardening Q& A on April 2, as well as a whole new series of vegetable and herb gardening classes.
