Ingomar Garden Club Annual Plant Sale. May 11th 8am till 2pm Corner of Ingomar Road and Route 19
Hanging Baskets Perennials Vegetables Crafts
The sale isn't untill May 11th, BUT the perennials need to be dug up divided and potted by April 1st. So members start planning now what to bring, collecting pots and planting material. The first "Diggums Workshop" project is April 1st. at Mike Barns Inc. Goodyear Warehouse, ( the finest place to buy tires. ) The second workshop is April 8th. Ample time to bring seedlings started by the members. I'm told some exotic tomatoes for the connoisseurs, along with milkweed for the Monarch butterfly lovers, will be in the mix.
As this is the clubs major fundraiser Crafts are being added as a feature. Here are a few examples. a hand crocheted scraper from sparkle yarn, about 4 inches wide and as tough as nails.
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
