Gardening brought to you by the Ottawa Public Library

"That was the last good garden I could grow which was two years ago," says Primeau. "In that garden I had corn, tomatoes, green peppers, green onions, yellow onions, chard, radishes, leaf lettuce, carrots, green beans and a special type of purple beans. I was also growing watermelon and potatoes in a nearby rock garden."

Online gardening programs are being hosted by the Ottawa Public Library during the months of May and June. If you wish to learn how to or more about gardening, the library is bringing experts to you through their free zoom events.
