It's always a little tricky to see how early you can be ready to pull off one of these square foot garden workshops. Today was perfect-about 60 degrees, even warmer as we finished, and sunny. To fit one in by the end of March is pretty good for us. I spend 3 hours on this workshop and by the time we're done, people leave with a small gift, and they know everything to have a great square foot garden. All the advanced techniques are discussed and shown, along with a few "tasty" treats along the way. I was lucky enough to have 3 suckers from a tomato plant that I'm growing. I simply cut it out and rooted it in one of my potmaker cups and gave them away. This was a Sun Gold cherry tomato plant-one of the sweetest tomatoes you'll ever taste. I think they all got to taste arugula, mizuna, tatsoi, and minutina. Some of them were pleasantly surprised by the flavor of these lesser known salad greens. We also had someone who wasn't ready for the arugula pepper taste-when you grow it in cooler weather it tastes strikingly different that those varieties that have been grown in warmer soil. If you're interested in learning more about these workshops, feel free to contact me. All participants have already attended a 90-120 minute introductory class so we don't have to waste a lot of time answering questions about content that they've already learned. I was able to have an unbelievably great garden last year. I think this year it will be even better-you never stop learning how to do things.
