Spring is in the air...

It happens every year... yet it is always new...
So much is going on in and around the garden (and in my head) right now in preparation for our growing and educational season.  
I have started some lettuce seeds in the greenhouse. It's probably too early, as we still get some really cold nights and the greenhouse is not heated, but it's worth the try I thought...
We are getting ready to have children's workshops in March and I'm preparing for that...
There is quite a bit of cleaning to do, some digging, raking and - the list goes on.
Our Shiitake workshop has nearly 40 people signed up - we will see the actual turnout this saturday, and I will post plenty of pictures :)

I wanted to share some pictures from our Friday Flower Pot Extravaganza here:)
Huge thanks goes out to Hitomi for organizing this event and to Takuro for opening up the clay studio so graciously and for donating clay!!! Thanks guys!
We had a nice turnout of people, and they all turned out some great pots! 
Here are Crystal and Kacy hard at work and having fun:)
Gloria getting instruction from Hitomi:)
And Takuro, with little Ken:)
There were also Bruce from Bulldog Pottery, Evan and Mike and Weezy from Wet Dog Glass,
Santiago the do-it--all man, Adam the Ad-Hoc, and Andreas. Well. I was there too.
On Sunday Adam and I went back to trim the bottoms, drill the holes, and throw plates to go under pots...

We will repeat the extravaganza again this friday, from 4:30 to ...
I will start herbs, and flowers suitable for pots, or garden soon, and STARgarden will have the
Flowerpot Fundraiser in the beginning of May.
Come join us!
