May 7 column

Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Gardeners' party.

It's all about Saturday's (May 9) garden event of the year, Garden Expo. This column was intended to run last Sunday but there was a mix-up at the paper, so they're running it today to make sure you know about the event in time to mark your calendar!

Garden Expo is a free event that features over 250 garden-related vendors selling everything from plants and bulbs to garden furniture, services and garden art. It will be held in and around Spokane Community College's Lair student union building at 1810 N. Greene St. from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There are free seminars and demonstrations held throughout the day. I'll be presenting one of the seminars on "Growing Heirloom Vegetables" and will have free heirloom seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds to give away!

My friend and co-author Pat Munts and I will be signing copies of our book all day as well, inside the Lair building. It'd be great if you could stop by and say hello.

Don't miss this awesome event -- you'll have a grand time!
