Edamame by Zesmerelda in Chicago
Come on down! We don't have a front row and we won't call on you to make a speech. Just come to bask in the glow of gardening nirvana.

Jere will be coming to the meeting. I told her how much we talk about her when she is gone, so she has no choice, but kidding aside, we don't seem to get around to any gossip. Too much else to talk about, especially during the growing season.

I am bringing chocolate mint, lemon mint, peppermint and some of our famous white bitter melon plants that Barbara was nice enough to start for us this year. Even if you don't try to eat it, it would be a novelty to show your friends. I could also pot some catnip, or just make some cuttings so you can treat your cats when you get home.

If you want some, speak up so I bring enough. (Judy, I remember your request, so no need to speak up here.)

I would also be glad to share some purple iris, and daffodils. I have to thin some out anyway and if you don't get them, I just have to find another place for them. Somehow I just can't throw plants away.

Most of you know how much I LOVE edamame. (pictured above) It is the one thing I can not grow enough of, and eat so fast we don't take time to take a picture, which is why I borrowed one from the web.

Well,... I will bring a bag of seed that should grow enough for about 10-15 servings that you get in a Japanese restaurant and pay $4 per serving. What an deal!

If we have enough interest, we can have a drawing for them and I might (might) bring a second bag. I buy these by the pound, so I usually have some extra, but they last from year to year so when I end up using them most of the time.
