Dzień dobry Ogrodnicy!

The 2023 season can now be officially declared over. In most parts of Poland we have frosts behind us, which ended this year's vegetation. We will eat the next fresh, juicy, wonderfully aromatic tomatoes only in six months :( Yesterday, beautiful snow fell at our place, covering the wonderful autumn colors with a snowy feather:

We invite you to read today's newsletter:

1. Training "Cultivation, varieties, diseases and pests of tomato and bell pepper"

A lecture organized by the Warmian-Masurian district of the Polish Allotment Association (PZD) will be held this Thursday (23.11) at 10:00 am. The topic: "Tomatoes and Peppers: from seed to seed." The idea of the lecture is to create a closed whole, presenting in the form of a process the cultivation of tomatoes and peppers. During the course, I will talk about, among other things, the history of the tomato, cultivation, varieties and diseases, as well as the acquisition and storage of seeds. You can attend the lecture in two ways: in person (Olsztyn, 4A Kajki Street), or remotely. The entire lecture will be available to watch live on the YouTube platform. The link to the lecture will appear in this article, which you are reading now, before 10:00 am (on Thursday). You will be able to ask questions, which I will try to answer both during and after the lecture. If you want to learn more about growing tomatoes or peppers - save the date: 23.11 10:00 a.m. The lecture, along with the panel discussion, will take about 2-3 hours.

2. Best time to shop

November is the best time to buy tomato and bell pepper seeds from our store. Why? This is the time of year when all varieties are available to purchase, the seeds are fresh and just waiting for you to pick them. It is worth reminding at this point that tomato seeds retain their germination power for about 5 years, and peppers for 2 years. From now on, there will only be fewer varieties with each passing day, week and month, until October 1, 2024. If you want a full selection, don't delay.
