Mary's Peak Orchid Society Sale
We've all been on pins and needles anxiously awaiting the announcement. To be or not to be? That is the question. And the answer is: to be! But a little different this year... Here is the official announcement from Mary's Peak Orchid Society:

Mary's Peak Orchid Society is going to hold its annual sale this year again on Saturday, February 6th at Garland Nursery. Due to the COVID pandemic it will be different with fewer vendors and limited entry. We are not advertising to the general public so we are inviting you through this email. If you know of an orchid loving person who might not receive this notice, please share this information with them. To attend the sale you MUST sign up for a time slot (link below). We chose to have you sign up for a time slot so that you will not have to wait in a line to enter the greenhouse--it might be raining! To enter the greenhouse you will need to wear a mask that covers both your nose and mouth and maintain 6 ft. social distancing. You should bring your own box to carry your orchids to your car and we would prefer that you pay by check if possible.

In order to allow for greater spacing inside the greenhouse we will not have a show/display area, though vendors may bring in their favorite, blooming orchid to show off within their sales area. We are also unable to have a repotting station this year. Hopefully later in the year when we can be outside, we may be able to have a repotting event.

You can expect to find a good variety of Cattleya and its hybrids; Oncidium, Miltonia, Brassia, Odontiglossum and their hybrids; as well as a variety of other species. There will also be orchid companion plants such as Bromeliads, Begonias, and Gesneriads.

To sign up for your time slot go to :

Please know that each person attending the sale must have their own sign up slot. For example, a couple from the same household must sign up for two slots.

We are sorry if this seems complicated but these are complicated times. We are trying our very best to accommodate the situation and still hold our annual sale. We hope to see you there!

Seed Starting Guide
It's not too early to get a headstart on your vegetable endeavours! If you are starting your seeds indoors, we have all the right equipment to get you going. Heating mats are a great way to keep seedlings warm during germination. Most seeds need consistently warm temperatures to germinate and produce a strong root system. Using the mat will speed germination, produce healthier seedlings and prevent damping off. It's also a great idea to have a grow light above your indoor seedlings! Seedlings need a lot of light to grow into sturdy, healthy plants. No matter what anyone tells you, chances are that you do not have enough natural light in your home to grow robust seedlings. Even a south-facing window usually will not do. But don't worry! We've got you covered. If you're curious about which veggies you can be seeding now, here are the first two months of the year and what you can be sowing, either indoors or out.

Seed indoor: artichoke, arugula, endive, fava beans, kale, leeks, lettuce, mustard, onions, peas, scallions, spinach

Seed outdoor: radish, peas

Seed indoor: artichoke, asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, celeriac, celery, chard, chives, bok choy, eggplant, endive, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, lettuce, onion, parsley, peppers, tomatillo, tomato

Seed outdoor: arugula, cilantro, fava beans, garlic (cloves), mustard greens, onion, onion bunches, onion sets, peas, radish, scallions, spinach
