    What's A Pomander?


    HOW TO MAKE ORANGE AND CLOVE POMANDER BALLS

            Take firm oranges and stud them with whole cloves. That’s it!

           You can also use a toothpick to make pre-made holes; this is helpful for children because the cloves can hurt their little hands (and ours).

             Be creative and arrange the cloves in diamonds, circles, or other patterns. As the orange dries, it will release a delicate, spicy fragrance.

        REGISTRATION  NOT ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY- BUT WOULD HELP TO KNOW HOW MUCH MATERIALS WE NEED FOR THE POMANDERS WILL ALLOW FOR TWO A PERSON

    COLD FRAMES

    BY GRETEL ANSPACH

    SUNDAY FEBRUARY 16TH, 

     Cold frames and hoop houses are great season extenders, allowing vegetables to be planted 2-4 weeks earlier than unprotected plants. They also play a key role in the transition of seedlings of all kinds from the sheltered windowsill or greenhouse environment to the outdoors. Learn how, where, and when to use these interesting tools in your own garden.

    Gretel Anspach is an Overseer of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, a Lifetime Master Gardener with the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association, and a recently-retired systems engineer for Raytheon.  She has volunteered sporadically for the New England Wildflower Society as an adult’s and children’s guide. She considers her horticultural interests to be eclectic.  Gretel helped to establish and maintain two food production gardens that have provided fresh produce to the Marlboro Food Pantry for the last ten years.
