Monday May 20th saw yet another successful Twilight Garden meeting at the Carroll County Public Demonstration Garden. Nearly 40 folks showed up last night to learn about Salad Table construction, Salad Table soil media, best Salad Greens for a table, watering, fertilizing and harvesting. Additionally, the people were led on a tour of the many raised vegetable and edible perennial raised beds to learn about best practice food gardening. The Carroll Grow It Eat It Team began this new public outreach program last month with the topic of Pruning. Twilight meetings are scheduled monthly on the third Monday of the Month with four more topics remaining for 2013. Composting is slated for June. July will see a discussion on pollinators and herbs. August will focus on cover crops with a season ending September meeting focused on “Putting the Garden to Bed & productive garden maintenance.
