Memorial Library By: Linda Denton Considering all this splendifer- ous weather, and the beauty of spring, dressed in her Easter best (read blossoms and blooms every- where), sticking with gardening seems to be the right path to travel this week. You've probably aheady got cold weather crops lie cabbage, broccoli, spinach, lettuce, cilantro, peas, etc., in the ground, but it's still a little too early to plant oth- ers, like tomatoes,/xans and pep- pe, so now is a good time to look things over and plan where to plant what. lhink of the things that take a lot of space, and things that take very little...things that like a little shade, others that like a lot, and still others that like sun, sun, and more sun...think of things that like acid soil, and things that don't. To get the biggest bang for our buck, think of the space you've got and how best to use it. In most, it's easy to find all those things out, just go to your local library and look for the kind of gardening you're interested in doing, or tot the specific plants you want to try. Better Homes and Gardens Complete Guide to Gardening is a good year-round source since it deals with gardening indoors and out. ]here ,are lots of beautiful color photos of gardens, and indi- vidual plants, along with plant- tables that tell you aN)ut soil, light and other individual plant likes and dislikes. It even tells you how to figure out how to choose trees that will not only fit your needs, but that will fit and thrive in the places you plan to put them.

Anne Halpin has a handy little b)k called Gardenmj!g, "an inspired collection of practical tips on creating and nurturing your garden from trans- planting seedlings to landaping with flowers." Some examples include when to prune evergreens ... restoring rhododendrons...don't pick bulb foliage...deadhead the right way...and seed-saving tips. If pruning is your problem, you can try Ortho'- All Ab Prun'n which gives specific instructions fl)r doing the right thing by 280 trees, shrubs and vines, and tells you how to avoid pruning mis- takes as you can increase bloom- ing, slow growth, and repair dam- age. After that miserable ice storm in February, the latter should be a really hot topic. The last two selections deal with plant problems, like bugs and diseases. Organic Plant Protection is "a complete comprehensive ref- erence on controlling insects and diseases in the garden, orchard, and yard without chemicals...and Common-Sense Pest Control has the "least toxic solutions for your home, garden, planks, and commu- nity."

Save a life: join the marrow donor list You could save someone's life if you join the National Marrow Do- nor Program Registry. Each year, more than 30,000 children and adults are diagnosed with leukemia and other diseases for which a stem cell transplant may be the only cure. Only 30 percent of these people will find matching donors within their thmilies. The others will look to the Na- tional Marrow Donor Program Registry for a potential life-saving Preparing a Sunday meal  Pictured here, in the mid '40s, is a family get-together, to prepare a family meal.

"Over the last decade, the registry has grown sig- nificantly, which has enabled more patients than ever before to receive transplants for life-threatening dis- eases," explains Stephen J. Forman, chair of the transplantation pro- gram at City of Hope Cancer Cen- ter in Los Angeles. "In the 27 years since our first successful transplant, medical ad- vances in this field have given thou- sands of people worldwide a sec- ond chance at life," Fonnan contin- ues. "The only way to ensure that a greater number of patients will find matching donors in the future is tbr more people to join the National Marrow Donor Program Registry." Ethnic minorities are strongly en- couraged to register because they are under-represented. For more information on regis- tering, call I-8(X)-MARROW-2 or visit www.marrow,Qrg.
