Adventures in Vegetable Gardening

Tuesday, July 7th or Tuesday, July 14

from 3pm-4:30pm

Many people are planting vegetable gardens this year. By now most of the seeds and seedlings are tucked in and ready to grow. Now what? Do I fire up the grill and wait for the fruit to show up or do I have to keep an eye out for problems? What if something is eating my greens? What are those black spots on my tomatoes? How do I convince the groundhog to eat in my neighbor’s yard? These and other timely questions will be answered for you in this virtual gardening session. Topics will include pest and water management, fertilizer, harvesting and more.

Dandelion Wine: The Painting and Poetry of Summer

Thursday, July 16th from 11am-12:30pm

For those of us who live in a four-season climate, every turn in the cycle brings us a new framework for our senses. Light plays on our world with a new bright intensity or a muted subtlety, color explodes or fades, the patterns and rhythms of our days change, and things just sound and smell different as seasons settle in. After the excitement of spring, summer offers us warmth and a lazier pace to our days. Painters and poets have long given us their expressions of how summer feels and sounds to them, and this program will showcase some of their words and pictures to help us celebrate the season.
