Hey, Weed'em & Reap is back this Friday at New Century in ShelbyvillePosted Thursday, March 22, 2012, at 7:53 AM
I hope some of my new friends from Shelbyville Garden Club will attend? We had a great visit yesterday and discussed one of my favorite topics, organic gardening. We got to touch some of the basics, but I almost lost one to an after lunch nap. Those who know me, know I could not let that happen. :-)
I would venture to say that there were some in the room who knew as much, if not more than me, but they were kind not to show it.
I knew they were a gracious group when I noticed a lady who was smiling big time, but appeared to have her head cocked a little so I asked her if she could hear me. Her response, (with a huge smile) was that she could not understand most of what I was saying but she could tell I was doing a good job. Ya gotta love that kind of audience.
I moved closer and tried to speak louder, but it may have been the speed of my talking. I tend to speed up as I get excited and talking organics can do that to me.
Anyway, a good question came up about membership. Could they belong to their club and W&R? Why sure! Once you come, you are a member, but since there are no dues, attendance rolls, or officers we take no offense if you want to be a member of any club. In fact we love to hear the growing wisdom you learned elsewhere.
We gather between 6-7 pm depending on if you want to get something to eat and by 7 pm we start channeling our conversations to growing stuff.
Sometimes we fire up the computer for a "show 'n tell" or to do research. Maybe we will have a presentation if someone is really fired up about something, or we just share our garden experiences over the past two weeks.
Not a gardener? No problem, we have plenty of enthusiasm to share. We'll have you growing weeds in no time.
