Eighth Pa Herb Fest

April 7, 2006

I just thought I’d send out a quick reminder for those of you living in the Central PA area. Tomorrow is the final day of the 8th Annual Pennsylvania Herb Festival. The Herb Fest is being held at the York Expo Center on the York Fairgrounds.


Spring Greens

It has been so dry that I resorted to watering the garden last weekend after planting parsnip, salsify, turnip, spinach, and kale seeds. I also transplanted a few heirloom lettuce, spring broccoli, and Swiss Chard plants out into the garden.
