GLEN MORRIS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
According to the weather forecast, the first couple of days in March will be stormy. As the saying goes, March will come in like a lion and go out like a lamb. At least we can hope the end of March is pleasant. This is an English proverb dating back to the 19th century.
Another proverb is: When March blows its horn, your barn will be filled with hay and corn. This means that thunderstorms in March happen when the weather is unusually warm which should bring crops on early.
The March edition of our GMHS Newsletter, "Garden Gleanings," has been e-mailed to Society Members and is posted here.
Our next general meeting is Monday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m. at the Glen Morris Central Public School. Bob and Juli Proracki will talk about growing sweet potatoes organically. They started out as tobacco farmers in Norfolk County and made the switch to sweet potatoes. As owners of the Round Plains Plantation, they have an interesting story to tell.
At our meeting, we will also be explaining our "Rural Roots" initiative for 2018 and handing out vegetable seeds. We hope you can join us.
May the winds of March be warm.
