Gardening season is in full swing!

The Old Farmer's Almanac says that the last date of Frost should have been Apr. 20 - even given the odd weather we've been having, at this point in the year we should be pretty safe. Perfect time, and perfect weather for plants, gardens, and Library sales.

May 19th The Friends of the Collinsville Library and Southern York County Garden Club will be selling plants, as well as books, baked goods, and other items at the Collinsville Community Library.

June 2nd the Kreutz Creek Valley Library Center will have their annual used book sale, plant, craft and yard sales and food! You can also sign up early for Summer Reading Club, as well as get a peek at Bob the Critter Man's critters.

Want to learn how to enjoy your garden without killing your back or weeding for endless tedious hours? On May 23, Southern York Library will be offering a class on "Lasagna Gardening" - stop by at 1:00 and learn more about how this is easy, why it is better, and how it got such a wacky name.

So - stay tuned for classes, events and sales around York County. Libraries can help you populate your yard and garden, for a fraction of the cost you might otherwise spend. Not only do you save money, but you're also helping your local library.

Of course, you can always check out the newest books on gardening at your library!
