Regarding pesticides and herbicides

There are a number of threats to garden productivity, some of which are very difficult to control. So, often I'm tempted to take "serious actions" against both weeds and predators in my garden and a few times I have succumbed to feelings of expediency to do "something." I've been aware of risks and hazards, but this article from consumernotice.org gave me useful information in common agricultural practices for managing threats to crops and caused me to reconsider.

Full disclosure correction

Full disclosure: My 2 pictures that I submitted today are from my Ellensburg home. I failed to mention that when I submitted them. After reading the fine print about being a local Snoqualmie Valley based group I had to correct my submissions. We still have a Fall City home and garden that my wife takes pride in. My pictures were just to show what a small space can provide under ideal growing conditions.                 Kevin Little, Manastash Farm See More

April 17 Trellis Forum: Nile Clarke Memorial Plant Exchange

Saturday, April 17, 2021, 10:30 - 12:00

Topic: Nile Clarke Memorial Plant Exchange

Our fellow gardener, Nile Clarke, recently lost his battle with cancer. He was known for his generosity and smiling, sunny spirit.
Each year, he grew hundreds of tomato starts and gave them to everyone. Trellis members will continue his wonderful tradition with this Nile Clarke Memorial Plant Exchange.
Come join us, bring your vegetable starts and share them with fellow gardeners. Everyone is welcome!

Location change: This an in-person event at Quigley Park across from the Farmhouse Market in Fall City. We will observe COVID-19 group meeting guidelines, with social distancing and facial masking. See

http://trellis.ning.com/events/nile-clarke-memorial-plant-exchange for more information.

Join our social media group at https://mewe.com/join/trellisgardeningsnovalley, or log in to your mewe.com account and find us there.

Trellis is a monthly forum about produce gardening in the Fall City/Snoqualmie/North Bend micro-climates.
Each month, the group discusses timely & seasonal gardening topics. Learn and share information about growing all kinds of edibles including: vegetables, herbs, root crops, berries and fruits. Everyone is always welcome

Welcome

Trellis started as a group of gardening enthusiasts visiting each others vegetable gardens for inspiration and exchanging ideas. Our excitement for what we could learn from each other developed into a community forum where all could come and share and grow from each others experiences.

Each 3rd Saturday of the month, we meet to share and discuss a topic of vegetable gardening relevant to the season and this area. Vegetable gardening in western Washington and certainly in the Snoqualmie Valley area is unique, due to soil conditions, moisture, cooler temperatures, and various other factors. Together we can learn and teach each other from our own experiences and knowledge.

Our group includes a wide range of expertise from those with 15+ years of gardening experience to first time gardeners. We welcome everyone into our monthly discussion forums. It is a great place to share resources and experience for vegetable gardening in the Snoqualmie Valley area.
