Saturday's black plastic gardening class at John's Park was a lot of fun, despite the heat and humidity. At least we had a nice breeze blowing that day!
A few stalwart gardeners made it, proving that gardeners will venture out no matter the weather. One attendee had even made it to a class that took place in the frigid cold in January as well as the stifling heat of mid-June. You have to give mad props for that!
The black plastic gardening method is one of my favorites - it's quick, easy, and inexpensive.
It's as simple as spreading the plastic, using some heavy items to hold it in place, cutting holes larger than your hand, digging out the sod in those holes, and putting in your plants.
Anne Williams said the method was so easy that she could even garden in sandals!
If you missed it and would like to learn more, don't worry, we'll be holding another class at the Blust Avenue Teaching Garden in July. In that class, we'll explore many gardening methods, including alternative containers, mounded beds, and black plastic. Stay tuned for details!
