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.
