garden tableJULY 9 – Dealing with Garden Challenges – Timber Ridge Garden Tour Saturday, July 9, 2022
This 4 garden tour will open your eyes to the huge dilemmas that home gardeners face and overcome here in the valley: having to literally uproot your garden and move it miles away, dealing with a pothole 6’ deep in your front yard, sandstone slopes along the sides of your garden and adjusting to the challenge & change of gardening alongside house construction next door.
These gardeners have overcome all that and more and they did it themselves.
Come join us and be amazed at their grit and creativity. See full post
