A Potpourri of Gardening Stories…

Love the picture…and a shameless plug for a great program!!!

On hot summer day, it’s good to stay in the AC and read about gardening. Today I’m sharing three different pieces I found or had sent to me from on-line. The first is about a student farm at KU. “Just two years ago, the student farm, located in north Lawrence near the municipal airport, was a mere five people working on one small plot of land. Since then, the student farm has expanded into 50 plots, and it is continuing to flourish.” Here’s the link;

The second link takes you to a page about straw bale gardening. “Straw Bale Gardening is simply a different type of container gardening.  The main difference is that the container is the straw bale itself and is held together with two or three strings”. Here’s the link; http://strawbalegardens.com/

This last article will make you think…and maybe scratch your head!!! The title “What a Plant Knows” should pique your interest. Here’s the link; http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2012/06/06/what-a-plant-knows/

Enjoy, and stay cool!!!1
