It’s home gardening time now

Spring is approaching, and our thoughts turn to the joys of nurturing garden vegetables and herbs.There is nothing comparable to growing your own — the taste and nutrition far surpass varieties available in supermarkets these days.

Now is the time to break out your gardening supplies and start planting your tomato, pepper, eggplant, broccoli, cabbage and thyme seeds. You can pick up inexpensive small greenhouses at most garden shops. Also, using a grow light helps your seedlings exponentially.

Activities & events in Thurman

Thurman Maple Days are to be held the three weekends in mid-March, beginning March 9. Each Saturday and Sunday will feature free sugarhouse and sawmill tours, demonstrations, children’s activities and local crafts. It’s a great way for people of all ages to experience mountain-town culture.

Valley Road Maple Farm will be serving pancake breakfast, and there are destinations throughout town. We hear there’s a new maple farm that’s brand-new to the event this year. For details, call: 623-9718 or see: ThurmanMapleDays.com.

The next Gleaning food distribution session, held the first Monday of each month, is to occur at 1 p.m. March 4. Participants are asked to bring their own reusable cloth bags or shopping bags to bring their goods home.

The Thurman Food Pantry will be open on the first Monday of the month from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., and during all other weeks, on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The Thurman Fire Co.’s next meeting is set for 7 p.m.March 8. Those interested in becoming a volunteer are urged to stop in and ask how you can help. Every volunteer saves our town substantially in taxes.

The Thurman Quilting Group holds their meetings every Monday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Thurman Town Hall. All are invited to bring their knitting, sewing, or quilting projects and make new friends. For details, contact Myra at 623-2633.
