Late last week I had the opportunity to escape from the curse of this very long winter. I spent some time at the Crown Point Ecology Center in Bath, Ohio. Greg and I are CSA members this year, and I’m doing some volunteer work on the center’s marketing committee. I wanted to get some photographs of the progress that Tim and Whitney are making on getting the plants ready for this Spring’s organic plant sale. As I walked through the warm greenhouse, I was excited to see all of the green. Including the tiny 3-week old artichoke plants. There were lots of lettuce, onions and grasses sprouting. I counted several varieties of thyme including orange, German and summer. The beginnings of great rosemary plants were also peaking just above the potting soil. If you are in the Akron area in May, be sure to mark your calendars for the plant sale. The organic plant sale is May 14 & 15, 9:00-4:00PM (Sat) 11:00-3:00PM (Sun). Last year I purchased several herbs, tomato plants and peppers.
