LibConnect: April 2022

A place for the CSU Library team to connect and share.


It's spring! Time to share your gardening tips, secrets, and current projects...all month long!


From left to right and top to bottom:

A small tomato plant with accompanying basil. A line of potatoes doing decently well, and the cucumber planter in the distance. Shallots, garlic, and some spinach plants planted together in a separate bed. My satsuma tree that I recently trimmed is bursting with new buds. My indoor plant station, complete with sprouts that will hopefully be planted in due time!



I really haven't done much gardening yet this year, but we did plant three crepe myrtles in our back yard to help hide our neighbor's sheds. I plan to landscape around them soon and maybe add some azaleas or flowers of some sort:


See the scraggly bushes behind the beautiful flowers in this photo?


I have plans to rip out the bushes--which are gardenias that have succumbed to a fungus--and replant with bottle brush trees. I'm going to try to complete that project soon because they are so unsightly!
