Is It Really Almost Time to Call it a Year?






You are all cordially invited to help us tidy up the Garden this Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., before we all go home and curl up with a good book or our knitting until next April.


We are again anticipating great weather and will be:


  • pulling and chopping dead flowers and plants from the pantry and common plots and flower bed;

● flipping and spreading compost;




  • planting asters in the front flower beds;

  • harvesting and sorting produce for our last pantry donation of the year;

  • emptying most of the rain tank and storing the last barrel;

  • tidying the shed; and

  • pruning roses.

As you can see from the pictures I took last Saturday, our roses are still quite cherry and our Fall crops have grown just swell, especially the turnips and lettuce.


At 11:00 a.m. we will also have our annual members meeting, review officer reports, elect new trustees, discuss upcoming goals and recognize stellar volunteers.


At noon, we will pull the winning raffle ticket for our uber-chic garden cart. Thanks and good luck to everyone who bought a ticket . . . . or two or threeJ


Finally, Tom is planning to BBQ chicken (so RSVP if you plan to attend and eat).


As always, refreshments will be served.


Be there or be square.
