Santa Fe Spring Garden Fair this Saturday April 27


This year’s theme is Food for Thought, with speakers, exhibits, clinics, and demonstrations all tied to the idea of nourishing ourselves, our land, and the creatures that share the land with us. There are 3 speakers this year.  I will be one of the guest speakers and talk on tips for growing tomatoes and other vegetables. Anne Schmauss will talk about providing habitat and food for birds and Les Crowder will talk about bees, how we can help them and what we can plant to support them. Here is the speaker schedule:

Jannine Cabossel       10:45am
Tips for Terrific Tomatoes, Making the Most of Your Vegetable Garden

Anne Schmauss         12:00 noon
How to Attract Birds to Your Backyard Year-ound

Les Crowder               1:15pm
Honeybees: Landscaping with Bee friendly Gardening Practices

You don’t want to miss this event if you are a gardener here in the greater Santa Fe area!

    I would love to be there but am too far away. What do you think of using rock dust? I have heard mixed options and would love to hear yours.


    • Rock dust contains minerals and trace elements and is used in organic gardening practices. It puts back minerals in soil which have been lost to leaching and over gardening. It is added to improve soil fertility. Rockdust provides calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium plus trace elements.

      I have never used rockdust myself and should get a soil test done before I put it on to see if I need any of the amendments above before using it. What have you heard?


What do you think??
