On Wed. Aug. 17 we joined the Flamborough Horticultural Society and friends on a guided tour of Wm. Dam Seeds in Flamborough. The rain DID catch us but no one minded– after this summer’s terrible drought we gardeners were happy to see a nice gentle drizzle.
The display gardens had not been irrigated since mid-June (vegetable fields were given priority) so the plants were not as tall or robust as they normally would be. Still, there were many interesting varieties and we got to taste some fresh-picked tomatoes.
On Wednesday August 17 we’re joining the Flamborough Horticultural Society for a guided tour of the display and trial gardens at Wm. Dam Seeds. Carpool meets at 6 pm in the parking lot behind the Perkins Center at the northeast corner of Main and Kenilworth. If you’d like to go, please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org There is no charge for the tour.
