Harvest 2016 update

Jaci Colombo shared these thoughts and pictures with us from last fall.

"I have truly enjoyed my vegetable garden. It was a dry year and germination of seeds was poor but with determination I had great yields. Thanks for inspiration with your free seeds."

Great growing, Jaci!

Library Seedling Progress

Jacinta Colombo used seeds from the Tully Free Seed Library to plant eggplant, basil, summer squash, dill, carrots, beans. She says "Everything is planted, now I just have to watch and see. Very slow going. I waited until the chill was out of the air and ground, now it has been so dry very few plants are up. Too early to worry."  Thanks for the update, Jacinta!

Library Seedling Progress


Jessica DeLia, daughter Elayna and granddaughter Lillian planted their seeds from the Tully Free Seed Library outdoors a few weeks ago. So far, so good! It looks like they'll be harvesting some delicious produce in a few months. 

Click here for more info on our Seed Library. There are still seeds left! We also have an upcoming workshop series on Saturday 6/4 and 6/11 from 10 AM - 12 noon called Seed to Supper. Master gardeners from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County will teach us how to start a vegetable garden inexpensively. Register today by emailing seedlibrary@tullyfreelibrary.org or calling the library 315-696-8606.

Seed Library officially opens Friday, March 18, 2016

The Tully Free Seed Library will open on Friday, March 18th. Stop by the library to pick up your seed packets, and then update us throughout the growing season on how your seeds are doing. We'll share your news on this blog and the library Facebook page

We have books, magazines, and more available at the library to help you in your gardening adventure. If we don't have it at the Tully library, we can borrow it from another library. 

If you are interested in getting involved in gardening and learning more about growing your own food, the Tully Community Garden is starting their season soon. Located behind St. Leo's church, the community garden is run by volunteers who plant, tend, and harvest organic produce. The community garden already has organic seeds, so seeds from the Tully Free Seed Library can be used in your home gardens. Click here for the Tully Community Garden Facebook page.
