Garland Speaks with BDN About Upcoming Gardening Season

The Bangor Daily News interviewed Kate Garland, a horticulturist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, for the article, “Despite harsh winter, Maine farmers hopeful for upcoming season.” Even with record-breaking snowfalls this winter, Garland said farmers and gardeners shouldn’t see any long-term damage to the quality of soil, according to the article. She also said she is watching weather patterns while eagerly waiting to start her own garden this season. “This time of year, I’m checking the [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] website everyday, figuring out what’s going to work and making contingency plans as needed,” she said.
