CDCG plant sale this Saturday

tomatoes on vineHopefully this week will be the end of the overnight frost -- and we'll be able to safely put our plants in the ground.

Oh, right. We need plants.

Good timing: the Capital District Community Gardens will be holding its annual plant sale this Saturday. CDCG will be selling a selection of perennials, vegetable plants, herbs and heirloom tomatoes.

The sale is Saturday from 9 am - 1 pm at the 8th Street community garden in Troy. All the proceeds go toward supporting the community gardens and programs such as the Veggie Mobile.

Also: The Landis Arboretum in Esperance has its plant sale this weekend, too.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
