Pictured, a pair of vendors at the St. Marys Horticultural Society’s “Seedy Wednesday” conference discuss gardening, Feb. 3 at the St. Marys Legion Hall. Nancy Abra, left, from the Thorndale area, runs the business From My Garden. She presented on the topic of making jam in winter. Rick Weingarden of Harrington, right, operates Anything Grows Seed Co. His wares can be seen in the background, as well as regularly at the Western Fair’s Farmer’s Market. Other presenters included Luyten Garlic Produce, on the best practices of bringing up bulbs, and Master Gardeners, on the challenges of growing a garden in the city.
