Linden Staciokas and Ted Sponsel live and garden half the year in Alaska and have lots of experience at warming up the soil. Linden writes a gardening column in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner; she also writes for American Horticulturist and for Brooklyn Botanical Garden’s “Tantalizing Tomatoes” hand book.
Lucky for us, Linden and Ted winter on Orcas island and will share their tips — everything from straw to horse troughs to different colors of plastic and more — at the January 15 meeting of Orcas Island Garden Club. The meeting is at 10 a.m. in the Madrona Room of Orcas Center.
