We are gazing sadly at the moment at a pot of dirt. We'd hoped by now it would be sprouting delicious, aromatic herbs, creating an at-home organic herb garden. But after months, just stubborn dirt. If this has happened to you, or you'd like to avoid such disappointment, you'd do well to check out the "seed propagation" class this weekend at Common Ground Garden Supply and Education Center at 559 College Avenue in Palo Alto. Gardening expert Ryan Batjiaka will instruct you on proper soil and seeds as well as transplanting techniques. It's happening on Saturday, January 5 from 10:30am to 12:30pm. If being a better gardener happens to be your New Year's resolution, stay for Ryan's double-digging and bed preparation class at 2pm! Tickets, which you can buy online or by calling 650-293-6072, cost $31 per class.
