Labor Day event loops through Plymouth wine country

Here's the scoop: Free ice cream at Amador Flower Farm.

In the heart of Amador wine country, the destination nursery will be a stop on the upcoming Shenandoah School Road Progressive Picnic. Set for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Labor Day, Sept. 2, this fun event invites visitors to explore Plymouth's wineries as well as other landmarks such as the flower farm.

Besides free ice cream, Amador Flower Farm also will offer free popcorn. Have your picnic passport stamped at each location and enter to win a gift basket.

Shenandoah School Road loops past wineries that will be serving picnic treats during the event. Among the stops: Watermelon at Cooper Vineyards; gourmet chips and dips at Terra D'Oro; and hot dogs and home-cooked beans at Wilderotter Vineyard.

Home to millions of daylilies, Amador Flower Farm is located at 22001 Shenandoah School Road, Plymouth. Featuring massive valley oaks as well as vast fields of flowers, it's a great place to picnic year round, with tables under the trees.

Dig In: Garden Checklist

For week of Feb. 18:

It's wet to start the week. When you do get outside, between or after storms, concentrate on damage control:

* Keep storm drains and gutters clear of debris.

* Clean up tree debris knocked down by wind and rain.

* Where did the water flow in your garden? Make notes where revisions are necessary.

* Are any trees leaning? See disturbances in the ground or lawn around their base? Time to call an arborist before the tree topples.

* Dump excess water out of pots.

* Indoors, start peppers, tomatoes and eggplant from seed.

* Lettuce and other greens also can be started indoors from seed.

* Got bare-root plants? Put their roots in a bucket of water until outdoor soil dries out. Or pot them up in 1- or 5-gallon containers. In April, transplant the plant, rootball and all, into the garden.

* Browse garden websites and catalogs. It’s not too late to order for spring and summer.

* Show your indoor plants some love. Dust leaves and mist to refresh.
