When should the bulbs be planted? When should the plants be pruned and how much? These any many other questions will be answered by Sally Snipes as she presents a program on winterizing your garden. Snipes has been a gardener and plant person for the past 40 years. In 1990, she started the Julian Daffodil project and has coordinated volunteers to help plant over 4 million bulbs that paint the hills of Julian in the spring. In 2001, she received the award of Volunteer Horticulturist of the Year for San Diego County. In 2003 she won second place as a national community gardener. Living in Julian you do not have the flexibility to ignore your garden and yard when winter is about to hit. The first night with freezing temperatures, you will find many plants did not survive. Some will come back, but this is the best indicator that it is time to bring some plants in to your home or hot house, take some plants out of the ground and prepare others for the winter by adding bark, straw or simply letting the plants and trees that are native to this are do their own thing. Please plan to attend this educational event on Saturday, November 7 at 1:00 PM in the library community room. Following the program, Snipes has arranged to hand out some plants and bulbs that are reading for dividing and can be added to your yard this time of year.

This is a project that is entirely a community effort. From the money we receive by donations, we purchase the frozen turkeys, canned hams, dozen eggs, five pound bag of potatoes, bag of oranges, canned yams, green beans and tuna that make up the box. Already we have begun the signing up process to receive a box, After the Thanksgiving weekend, we will place our decorated boxes at the schools and shops on Main Street for donations of food items. These items will then supplement our box of purchased food. Julian Pie Company donates pies for each box and Dudley's donates bread. Each recipient will receive about a weeks supply of food. Becky of Soundings has prepared the application forms and letter we enclose in each box. This is her contribution. The apple boxes are provided to us from Anita Nichols of MOM'S Pie Shop.
