Weed'em and Reap report. Your thoughts needed.Posted Saturday, January 28, 2012, at 10:21 AM
I posted this on the tail end of the post about the meeting, but thought it might need its own post.
Barbara brought seeds to share, straight from unopened packs. She found a good clearance sale so now many of us will be trying cukes,and tomatoes we would might never gotten around to trying.
I got Cherokee, Charley Chaplin?, Hill Billy (for Kay);-)tomatoes and an Armenian cucumber (cream color). I believe it resembled another one that was white, but I forgot the name.
Two of us shared the Sansevieria mentioned above and it seems just in time to share with others, so my mother will be happy. I got those from her many years ago.
Some interesting and exciting ideas were discussed for the area being developed up on the square. The toughest part might be trying to determine which to do first or can we try two at one time?
We are thinking themed gardens, with exhibition or demonstration plants that mirror the theme, possibly sensory gardens, Civil War, butterfly, Pioneer, herb, enabling, espalier, and on and on. Almost too much to get our head around which is why it is going to be tough to choose one.
Maybe if someone who feels strongly for one type, they will spearhead that one and all of us (plus any one who wants to jump in)will assist in the physical construction? Just a thought?
What else did I forget. What about that website associated with the garden catalog?
