GARDEN OPEN DAYS start at my place in Columbia County, New York, on Saturday, May 11, when this slow spring promises lots of early goodies that would normally have gone by. Make a day of it: Reserve your ticket now for a morning organic fruit-growing lecture by Lee Reich, plus an afternoon grafting workshop—and an all-day plant sale by Broken Arrow Nursery is also on tap. The details:
