January 16 Class Notes, Homework, Quiz, etc.:
It was a pleasure meeting with you all yesterday and hearing from you all – great energy and lots of enthusiasm.
I’ll outline the parts of the manual you should read for next week (link to the Manual: http://umaine.edu/gardening/master-gardeners/manual/):
In the Soils Chapter:
- Soil and Plant Nutrition: A Gardeners Perspective:
- Soil Organic Matter:
- Measurement Conversion Chart and pH Preference Table:
In the Propagation Chapter:
- An Introduction to Seed saving for the Home Gardener
- Seed Starting at Home
- How to Build a Seedling Stand (Video)
Note: If you have dial up internet connection you may have trouble viewing the video. If you do don’t worry it is a review of what I presented in class yesterday. Also if you have any trouble accessing any of the fact sheets I listed please contact Becky or Sue at our office for assistance.
See you in class next Wedneday!
