Spring is in the air and many of us have been thumbing through seed catalogs and watching home and garden improvement shows on TV in anticipation of warmer weather.  For some reason, we look forward to outdoor jobs to be done in the spring that later in the season become simply dreaded outdoor chores.

 To set you on the right path of colorful fragrant blooms and healthy delicious homegrown produce, Wayne County offers many gardening seminars, shows, and sales, all with the spring garden enthusiast in mind.

 Here are just a few events scheduled for spring and early summer:

 April 17:        Scarlet, Gray and Green Fair, OARDC, Wooster
