Hello dear readers,
Most everything, every event, every gathering has been cancelled in Dallas and we are under ‘shelter in place’ orders until April 3.
The Dallas County Master Gardener office is closed and our Dallas County help desk is not available at this time. If you have garden questions, send them to us in the comments area of this blog and we will try to answer quickly.
Please don’t fret, our gardens will survive and one day soon we will be welcoming you back to Raincatcher’s events, plant sales, garden classes, and garden visits.
In the meantime, look through seeds you have saved and begin planting. Seeds represent hope!
Some garden centers in Dallas are open and have pick-up service because they supply herbs and vegetables. I have an order in right now, for starts of squash, eggplant, jalapēno, green beans and hopefully sun gold tomatoes.
Starla took this picture yesterday of The Raincatcher’s Garden to cheer you.
