March 2014

asclepias tuberosa
Wow, have we had enough of winter yet?  My prediction is our gardens will be spectacular this year with all the snow cover.  So, if you hate the snow now, be thankful for it this spring.  I am looking forward to heading to NH next week for a few weeks of pruning, classes and of course to see my grandbabies.  I have another grandson on the way, end of May!  Very excited, this will be my daughters first.  

We still have a few opening for pruning in the upcoming weeks.  Below is an article on the WHY's of pruning.  If you are going to attempt it yourself, there are some great You Tube videos, but then there are some real bad ones as well.  If you are going to watch any, concentrate on ones from either educational institutions or extension services.  

After a great garden series at the Peavey Public Library, I just want to extend my thanks to Dana and her staff for allowing us to invade the library this winter for our fireside chats.  We are enthusiastic about getting the Eastport Seed Saving Library going.  For anyone else interested, please contact me.  We need more people to get this ball rollin'.  We are having a meeting in April, just not finalized yet. 

I also want to thank the ladies at the Commons for welcoming us to Eastport!  Eastport is a great vacation destination and the Commons are a big part of it.  Visit their website athttp://www.thecommonseastport.com/shopatcommons.html

I have met some wonderful people who are passionate about their gardens and are enthusiatic about maintaining an organic chemical free environment on the island.  The schools also have been involved with starting their own gardens using hugelkultur.  Exciting!

Many miles were walked this winter looking at all the trees on the island.  I am sad to say that there are a lot of them that are declining and the island seems to have way too many Norway Maples.  Some of the trees like the Camperdown Elms, the European Beeches planted by the British, the very large Little Leaf Lindens, the large Black Locusts, and the many fruitful apple trees make this island special.  And there is no bittersweet!!!

This winter with my husband retired from his full time job, it has given me time to organize and concentrate on offering the best services to our clients ever.    We are now able to take on a few more maintenance clients since we have hired help.  Don't hesitate to call or email.  Many times people just don't know what TWIG does.  Here is a list of services we provide for both TWIG NH and TWIG ME.
