  • If someone would like some watercress, either to taste, or plant in a waterway, let me know before 3:00 tomorrow. I have to clean out the fish-pond stream several time a year and hate to just throw it into the compost.

    Of course we eat some in soup and stir-fry but sharing would be nice too. :-)

  • I am excited. I saw some honey bees on some wildflowers (weeds). They looked a little different that what I was expecting so I do not know if they were a different strain or if it has been so long that I forgot. BUT, they were there!

  • I'd like a little watercress to taste. Somehow I've missed that and I'm not getting any younger.

  • I'll put the order in right now. :-)

  • Regarding those bees... I've seen a few different species around here as well. I've seen the regular yellow ones, but lately I'm seeing alot more brownish colored and they're smaller than the "standard" yellow ones, or so it seems. I sure hope those aren't the Africanized menaces. And I don't intend to swat at one to find out.

  • Is it too late to request a little starter of watercress to put in a corner of my pond?

  • Not too late.We can let some taste it but I will bring rooted plants. The munching will do it good.

  • Thanks for another good meeting. Anytime we can give away all the plants we bring, instead of bringing them back home, we've done well.

    Next meeting I will have three African Violets to give away, airplane plants, some more aloe and anything else I can bring to do some Spring cleaning.

    Getting soil and mulch are the two big challenges for us regarding the "on the Square" gardens.

    If we get permission to pile some on the back lot while we move it into place, it would help a lot, OR if we can get the soil and mulch actually brought into the garden area, so much the better.

    Breaking the hard-pan where the gardens will go needs a champion as well. If we can do that the worms will be able to move from the new soil and mulch, down to the original soil and mix it up.
