Saturday, February 27, 10:30 – 11:30 am – Seed Talk at Allandale Farm

Planning is a critical component of getting a good yield from your garden.  Which varieties should you choose?  Which seeds do you start indoors and which do you sow directly?  What is organic seed?  What is open pollination?  Join the folks at Allandale Farm, 259 Allandale Road, Brookline, on Saturday, February 27 from 10:30 – 11:30 am for coffee and an in-depth discussion of seeding for your home garden.  You’ll hear about what to start when, successive planting strategies, good container vegetable varieties (especially important for city dwellers), and more.  The experts will share some of their favorite resources for seeds and talk about equipment, from bare bones to more involved set-ups.  Bring your questions and comments, and get started on your 2010 garden!  Free.  Email to sign up.  Thank you to for the tip on the Allandale Farm website,  Photo of John Lee  below courtesy of
