Planting Seeds in Honesdale
Despite the continued presence of snow on the ground and ice among the tree branches, a few sunny days have allowed the gardening crew to get a head start on the planting season.
The first batch of seeds has been planted in anticipation of the lush, warm growing season ahead.
Months from now, we’ll be harvesting a variety of colorful lettuces and onions, enjoying the beauty of lobelias, echinacea and other flowers, and the herb garden will be offering up a bounty of kalmegh, Chinese asparagus and lemongrass. And this is just the start!
Happy Spring from everyone at the Himalayan Institute!
