March 2020


I hope this finds all of you well and looking forward to some Spring weather.  At our place we have begun the Spring garden clean-up.  We are delighted to see some green peeking out from underneath the brown stalks of last year's growth.

At this time the Board of Directors is monitoring the spread of the coronavirus.  We are planning to have our meeting on March 19th.  Which will be a wonderful program by the owner of the Purple Adobe Lavender Farm on how to grow your lavender garden.  If concerns grow about the spread of the virus in Taos, we will cancel or postpone the meeting.

If you have a chance, check out our Facebook page for all sorts of great gardening information and events.  Vicky Zillioux has been doing a fantastic job of updating the content with many useful and interesting garden related articles.
