Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: May 8

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY

Presents a “Gardening Roundtable” on Thursday, May 14, at 7:00 p.m. Josh Leveque, who has been leading the “Gardening Roundtable” for the past year, has invited avid gardener Mike Race of Monument Beach to demonstrate inoculating logs with the spores of mushrooms.  At this session, participants will receive instructions on growing their own mushrooms. For only $8, people will be able to take home their own mushroom logs, after they learn to inoculate them with the spores of the delectable Shitake mushroom. Participants should sign up ahead of time, at least one week previous to the session, to guarantee that there will be enough logs for everyone. The number is limited to ten. Supplies needed for the evening are a drill, a 5/16” drill bit, and a rubber mallet. Logs, spores, plugs, and wax for sealing the plugs will be provided. Call the library at (508) 548-8961 for more information and to sign up. The annual plant sale, eagerly awaited by local gardeners, will take place on the library lawn, rain or shine, on Saturday, May 16, from 9:00 a.m. - noon.  This sale is the single most important place for locals to pick up perennials, which they know will thrive in local conditions, since they are all dug from gardens in Woods Hole and Falmouth. Every plant is donated to the sale by local gardeners. The most successful perennials are always in great abundance at the sale, a very good advertisement for their suitability in this area. There is always an abundance of hostas and daylilies. Loyal patrons also bring in annuals and vegetables that they have started specifically for the sale. Often these include very special varieties of peppers and tomatoes, among other delights. There are always some shrubs and herbs that are donated too. This year’s head of the “Plant Sale” is library Board member Nancy Copley, who has rounded up a crew of volunteer expert gardeners and strong diggers who can come out to people’s homes to help them in digging their gift plants. A few special local landscapers also donate plants, often shrubs, to the sale. All plants are very reasonably priced. A very few plants, “necessary” for local gardens, are purchased for resale, to round out the selection. Shoppers are cautioned to not come early, as the sale does not open until exactly 9:00 a.m. Likewise they suggest to not be late to see the best selection. If any plants are left over, they will be for sale at the library in the days following. For more information, or questions about donating and digging, call the library at (508) 548-8961 or email whpl.plantsale@gmail.com.
