The seed sale is coming!

9 02 2011

Mark your calendar for the third annual In-Feed Heirloom Seed Sale! This year we will be at Woodland Christian Church, on Saturday 12 March from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

We’re in the process of formatting the 2011 list of seeds and descriptions, and we will take pre-orders this year. Watch this space for more information and the new catalog. It’s time to begin dreaming about spring and summer gardening…

End-of-season garden forum

4 11 2010

It’s been a long, hot, dry, and grueling season. Most of us faced our share of challenges this past summer with the unusual weather. As we gear up for our next seed sale in March, we’d like to hear from you about how your summer went. We want to know all about your unabashed successes and agonizing failures. We also hope to find out what seed varieties you were happy/unhappy with and any suggestions you have for NEW seeds next year. All this feedback will allow us to better serve your gardening needs in 2011.

In-Feed will host a garden forum on Thursday, November 11, at 6:30 p.m. at The Rock/La Roca United Methodist Church (1015 North Limestone) in Lexington. We hope you are able to attend and join in the fun, as we discuss and examine the 2010 growing season. Please RSVP by e-mail (see link at right) or call BOB at 270-4027.

If you are unable to attend, we would still very much like to have your feedback. Please let us know via e-mail what worked for you this season and what didn’t, and any suggestions you have for next year. This information is very valuable to us in planning for next year’s sale, and we greatly appreciate your time and effort in sharing it with us.

The market opens at 8:00 a.m. and runs until noon on Saturdays.

Planting the fall garden

6 08 2010

Next Wednesday 11 August, the Edible Garden Series will continue with a workshop on fall vegetable gardening. Lexington’s late first frost date (last week of October on average) means we can take full advantage of cooler fall temperatures to extend the bounty we receive from our gardens. Come find out what to plant and when to plant it to make the most of what knowledgeable gardeners call “the second season.”

The hour-long workshop begins at 6:30 p.m. at Beaumont Presbyterian Church, 1070 Lane Allen Road in Lexington. For more information, contact John Walker at
