Workshop Handouts & a Giveaway!

Welcome to The Demo Garden Blog to all of you who attended the Get Growing Vegetables workshop this morning! I hope you learned a lot.

If you are looking for the handouts for the presentations this morning, here they are:

Basic Vegetable Gardening GGV (PDF)

Common Pest & Disease Problems (PDF)

Bibliographic Resources about Organics (PDF)

And now for the FUN part! I’m going to be giving away 2 Tomato Plants and 2 Pepper Plants that will be extras from the Demo Garden this year. The winners will get their choice of plants, depending on what is left after everything is planted. (So…you are relying on me to keep more than the bare minimum number of plants alive until May.)

There are 2 ways to enter, and you can enter a maximum of 2 times (one time each way)! You must use a real email address, otherwise I won’t be able to contact you.

1. Post a comment below, telling one thing you are planting in your garden this year.

2. Post a comment below, giving ideas for topics that you would like to see offered at future gardening workshops.

If you want to see what plants you might win, you can check out our seed starting list here.

Entry Deadline is Tuesday, March 30th at 5 pm. Winners will be announced Wednesday morning.

UPDATE: Congratulations to Mart and Audra, the winners of the pepper and tomato plants!

    I’ll be planting tons of herbs, tomatoes, jalapenos, cucumbers, and watermelon this year! Possibly some lettuce too!

  2. I will be planting squash this year! And of course tomatoes….

  3. I have a tough time remembering when to treat my lawn and fruit trees, a reminder always helps, as well as directions on the best approach.

  4. The stand out veggie I’ll be TRYING to grow this year is artichoke!!
