Bargain Bin Notes from the Garden Department: When you are spring cleaning, don't forget the garden and yard department. Now is the time to dig any perennial plants from the garden and label them. If you need pots or assistance, please let Anne Jenisch (802-685-2067) know. If you do have plants to share, please make sure they have a label with name and flower color so we don't have to guess about it. Any extra tools and decorations are also appreciated as long as they are in usable condition. For those of you who don't have a green thumb, a donation of a six pack (the plant kind, not beverage) from a local nursery would be great. Thank you much, Anne
