Since 2015’s garden was highly successful, the society will be planting a garden for 2016. This year the space with be expanded to included more room for pumpkins, asparagus, garlic, and other heirloom plants of choice by the society members.
SLPS president Daniel Cureton and vice president Ashton Longhurst worked in the evening on Sunday, March 20, 2016 to clean and clear the old dead plants and evaluate the space. Surprisingly, a number of plants survived the winter! A few of the onions, one parsley, oregano, both cabbage plants, and all of the collard greens!
The old dead leaves were plucked off the cabbage and collards and the space cleaned for what is to come. Because some plants went to seed, the society expects to have a few self starters for dill and tomatillo.
