If it’s spring, it’s time for the Traveling Tomato Show at YOUR Rowan County Public Library.  Back by popular demand, Julie Maruskin will be presenting her program on heirloom seeds on Saturday, March 31, 2-4 p.m. in the Community Room.       Learn to start tomato seeds and take home a free organic heirloom tomato seedling.  Please stop by the Library or call 784-7137 and preregister for the program so we can have enough seedlings for everybody attending.

To learn more about heirloom seeds, borrow some of the following from the Library:
