This year's Garden Meeting will be held April 13 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the Civil Defense Center in Bath.
Please plan to attend the annual spring 4-H garden meeting. Tips will be presented on both flower and vegetable gardening and how to exhibit them at the Steuben County Fair. Tom Cortright will present information on exhibiting flowers. You will be able to ask questions. Door prizes will also be awarded to 4-H members. Free seeds will also be given out to 4-H members.
In addition, you will be able to have the pH of your soil tested. If you would like the pH of your garden tested, you need to bring a SMALL amount (2 oz.) of air-dried soil from your garden. In order to get an accurate sample, take soil from four or five places in your garden, mix it all together, let it dry thoroughly and put about 2 oz. in a bag. Please label the bag with your name and phone number. The soil sample will be tested at the CCE Office and you will be notified of the results. The soil sample will tell you the pH balance of your garden plot.
