Master Gardeners' Plant Sale and Gardening Fest May 15 at Cheyenne Depot

Mike Ridenhour sent this:

Put away the snow boots and dust off the gardening boots. Spring arrives in Cheyenne with the annual Master Gardeners' Plant Sale and Gardening Festival. Come get supplies to grow your own local food, and get some early season goodies from some of the Wyoming Fresh Market vendors.

Saturday, May 15, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Historic Train Depot Plaza, Downtown Cheyenne

At the Garden Festival:

Annual and perennial flowers, vegetables, herbs, a limited number of small trees and shrubs. Also look for gently-used tools, a garden boutique and books and magazines on gardening. Brief, free lectures and workshops under the tent will cover designing a productive vegetable garden (including meeting the challenge of Wyoming’s climate).

Wyoming Fresh Farmers Market will preview their market season at the Festival. The market booth will include the following local products:

Heirloom tomato plants and bedding plants from Local Roots (formerly Wolf Moon Farms)
Gourmet Pasta from Pasta Pazza
Grassfed Beef, Jerky, and Eggs from Meadow Maid Foods
Grassfed Bison and Jerky from High-Point Bison
Natural Emu-oil Soaps and Lotions from Rabbitt Creek Enterprises
Cheyenne Honey
Pioneer BBQ

Wyoming Fresh Farmers Market starts its regular season on Tuesday, June 8, 3-7 p.m. on North Yellowstone, in front of Smart Sports.

I started a ton of stuff weeks ago and trying to limp them along. Got ticked off when I ordered some kiwi plants and they said they would be shipped mid June. Maybe Mid June is different on the east coast but I got them in mid April. So along with my hops it is time to get them in the ground with some warm compost tea.
