Spring is in the Air!

Since Valentine’s Day, I have been searching assiduously for my first Robin sighting of the year. Last week my efforts finally paid off.  This,  coupled with recent  teasing glimpses of the sun and ever diminishing snow piles, has turned my thoughts to Spring. Now that I can see my garden space again, I am wondering what to do with it this year.

As always, the library has the answers. We are conducting a whole series of programs and events for Earth Week 2010. We have great events planned,  and gardening is one of our topics.

There will  be  workshops to make your own rain barrel, allowing you to collect water to nourish your plants without wasting resources.

Do you have a small or even non-existent yard? Don’t let that stop you from growing your own fresh vegetables and herbs! Another of the topics of  Earth Week will be container gardening.

For a full schedule of Earth Week events, check our web page often for the latest updates. In the meantime, take a look at the great selection of small space gardening resources we offer.

    I saw a turkey vulture in my backyard the last two days. Turkey vulture sightings > Robin sightings. Go Michigan vultures!

    Oh, I am itching to get my fingers in the dirt again too! As far as wildlife sitings go, I've already got an ant invasion. If that isn't a sign of spring I don't know what is!
