The first organizational meeting of the of the new Bedford gardening club is now history. Thank you to the Times-Gazette for providing us a blog to get the momentum started and publicizing the meeting in the newspaper to catch the eye of those without computers. The attendance was probably a 50/50 split between those who knew from the blog and those who read it in the paper.
Thank you also to our hosts Nancy and Ricky Rao who allowed us to use their meeting room at the Hong Kong Buffet on Madison street. We apparently did not cause too much trouble since they have extended the use of the room to us again for our next meeting in a few weeks. Special thanks to Cindy who made sure we had our drinks and cleared our tables.
AND thank you to all who showed up. The mix was great. Some who are just starting and some who are actively growing A LOT! One of our members is cutting back their tomato plants from 250 to maybe a combined 150! Yikes, I don't know what to do with three plants harvest! We had young gardeners 18 months and younger, and seasoned members who grew younger as we sat there.
For those who planned to attend, but could not, WE MISSED YOU! I won't name names but you know.
Since half of us are bloggers and half are not, I will complete this in a letter to the editor. See you in the paper! I won't be able to submit it until tonight or Sunday so you may have to check a few day's issues.
Notice I did not say when or time of the next meeting? Read your paper!!!
