Web Site of the Week: gardening.cornell.edu
Posted by: Christine Bulson
With record highs in New York this week and a very mild winter, home gardeners are ready to enjoy spring in the backyard. There are many gardening web sites but one sponsored by the Department of Horticulture and Cooperative Extension at Cornell University, gardening.cornell.edu, is well done. It provides resources for not only the home gardener but for teachers and community groups that are interested in gardening and attracting and protecting wildlife. For the home gardener there are links to the basics of lawn, garden and landscape with topic subdivisions for each. For educators there are lessons, projects and publications that may be downloaded including The Humble Potato. Radishes to Riches suggests what to grow and market crops for a profit.
