June 11-Aug. 27 Summer Drop-in Sessions
Dear Glendale Families (Children with at least one adult):
Straw Bale Gardens: Grant from Madison Area Master Gardeners Association (MAMGA)
Squash and strawberries
Bush beans and cherry tomatoes
Mint/menta growing in the herb garden.
Mint should be planted in a container in your garden. If not, it will take over the garden for years to come!
Straw Bale Gardening: Sponsored by Madison Area Master Gardener Association
Strawberries growing in straw bales
Radish Mango Salsa Garden
Spring Salad Wrap Garden
The sour cherry tree blossomed this week which is about two weeks later than most springs. Usually harvest is in late June. It may be a few weeks later this year. Summer school garden students will do the harvesting and pitting and then it will be made into Glendale Cherry Jam! It's a hit with everyone involved.
Stop by garden 4 and snack on a spring time favorite: chives/cebollin. It is tasty in egg dishes and chopped up and sprinkled on cottage cheese. Enjoy! By the way, notice our new plant paver signs in the garden. We are creating these in Garden Club and will be adding these to the garden as more is planted.
Invasive Species Alert: Garlic Mustard in the Garden!
This is a highly invasive species that grows in April. If you see it in your garden or yard, pull it gently to get the tap root out. You will probably need to do it every year until it's gone. The seeds can last up to 7 years in the soil.
