Although one can never be certain in Upstate New York, it looks like we’re finished with snow, and that means one thing: it’s time to get out in the garden!
To help you out, we’ve just restocked the Macedon Seed Library with seeds for both flowers and veggies — free for the taking. Each envelope contains between 20-200 seeds for plants ranging from sunflowers and morning glories to tomatoes and bush beans. Each envelope also contains directions on how to plant the seeds for the best outcome.
So where is the Macedon Seed Library? Not surprisingly, it’s in the Macedon Library. You’ll find it in the back of the main reading room in a white and yellow hutch. There is other information there, as well, on gardening and caring for the earth. How does it work? It’s simple! If you need seeds, you are welcome to take up to five envelopes to get you started on your own garden. There’s no need to check anything out, and no charge for the seeds. In return, we ask you to help us replenish the Seed Library with your own seeds at the end of the season, if you have any left over.
While you’re at the library, why not browse the extensive collection of gardening books. You’ll find them in the non-fiction section. Look for gardening in the area around the books labeled 635 and up.
We hope you enjoy this service of the Macedon Library, and good luck with your garden this summer!
