Monthly Colorado Master Gardener Update Sessions

A monthly schedule for Colorado Master Gardner update sessions has been set.

Sessions will take place at the Archuleta County Extension office. Call 264-5931 or e-mail if you are a Colorado Master Gardner and would like to attend.

• May 3 , 9-11 a.m., Carol O’Meara will discuss “Container Gardening: Cool Pots for a Hot Summer,” by Alison O’Connor and Carol O’Meara. Unravel the mysteries of planting attractive containers for patio gardening. Leave with design tips, maintenance techniques and new varieties to withstand hot Colorado summer days. Many photos illustrate ideas for design to suit taste from formal to casual.

• June 7, 9-11 a.m., the topic is Colorado’s Weather, with Nolan Doesken, state climatologist.

• July 5, 9-11 a.m., Diagnosing Sprinkler Problems with Dr. Tony Koski.

Seed potatoes

The Archuleta County Extension Office is still taking orders for seed potatoes.

There are two kinds available, Sangre (red) and Yukon Gold (white). We are charging 50 cents per pound for both species.

Those of you who are just starting out and are experimenting, it is our suggestion that you order two to three pounds of each species instead of ordering a whole lot of them. This way you can experiment and see if you like them and then order more next year.

When orders arrive in mid-May at the Extension Office, each person will be contacted to pick up their order. If you are interested in ordering seed potatoes, call 264-5931 or stop by the Extension Office.

4-H Cookie Dough

If you missed your chance to order cookie dough this year, that’s OK because Archuleta County 4-H still has a few tubs of cookie dough for sale.

Call the Archuleta County Extension office before the tubs are gone, 264-5931.
