Lucky participants in the Oklahoma Land Run of 1889 could claim up to 160 acres of land. If that’s a little more room than you have to spare, don’t think you can’t still be a gardener.
The Del City Library, 4509 S.E. 15th, is presenting “Container Gardening” on Tuesday, May 14, at 6:30p.m. The session is free and open to the public.
“Oklahoma State University Master Gardener Lynette Bivens will be on hand with loads of tips about growing veggies and flowers in pots and pans, on a patio, or even in a purse,” said librarian Sally McCurry. “It’s a how-to starter session that shows you how to garden using the most unusual recycled containers. You won’t have had this much fun getting your hands dirty since you were six years old.”
