Check out the latest seedling crop at the Information Desk on the second floor! This year we are growing mostly herbs, marigolds and vegetables. If all goes as planned, we hope to include healthy plants in a raffle for participants who complete the Green Committee’s Reduce Your Waste Line program. We will be having lots of events and programs this coming May, so check the Calendar , come to your Library and learn what you can do to reduce the amount of trash you produce in your household.

Cucumbers are still producing but they’ve developed powdery mildew on their leaves. Best guess is that the leaves have been too wet too often this summer which can be a problem especially at night. The Library has a sprinkler system that is set to go on every night and the cucumbers are fairly close to one of the sprinkler heads. This, plus cooler temperatures in general, plus the heavy rains we have experienced lately have all been contributing factors.
