Weed'em & Reap garden club for ALL this Saturday June 5th

Posted Tuesday, June 1, 2010, at 8:24 AM

The Weed'em & Reap garden club will meet this coming Saturday at Celebration Assisted Living for another pot luck supper, work on the new garden we started and good conversation about our gardens or 'gardens-to-be'. Come between 6::00 & 6:30 for food but don't turn away if you are running late. We want YOU to join us.

We have a few "backsliders" we need to encourage to attend. We miss you. We always have plenty of food, so don't worry if you don't have time to bring anything. The meeting room is excellent, no noisy distractions, comfortable chairs and as you know, we all love to talk about gardens.

My cleomes have reseeded themselves and seem tougher than ever. The main fig is coming back strong but my heirloom fig from Italy may need to be replanted. It just does not flourish in the spot I placed it over 17 years ago. Took me long enough to figure that out, didn't it?

No ripe tomatoes yet, but if lookin' at them makes a difference they should be stewed by now. The ones in the ground are still doing their thing underground but the potted one from last year is doing better. Some volunteers look good too.

I just finished mulching everything that could use it and will wait for some seeded area to sprout before I get too close. (note to self) Need to start another batch of corn.

I am going to let the rest of the bok choy go to seed and I learned my lesson about saving seeds from the Chinese melons. My favorite source was closed over the past week for inventory and vacations so I had to go to China Town to round out my selection for the year.

I am starting to ramble and I know that rambling is the theme of my blog but it is a work day, so, see you later!
