  • Can't wait!...These meetings are great, now I have new friends, super conversations, and great information on high-end and simple gardening.

    All of the above has meant great tomatoes that I grew myself throughout all of this past summer and then some, plus plenty to share with family and friends. My garden will grow and be better and stronger this coming year with what I have learned this past year.

    Thank you Steve and all who have contributed to a huge bit of happiness in my small garden world. I look forward to the new year with you all, and what the new adventures in gardening will bring.

  • I've ;earned in a 'round about way that there will be some eats at the meeting tonight. You should be covered if you do not get to eat before you get there. :-)

    NOTICE: Some folks may not know about the meeting since it did not show in the paper. Talk it up if you can.

    If you have never tried cucamelons, mouse melon, Mexican Sour Gherkin, etc., tonight will be a good time to get some samples. I grabbed all I could just before the freeze and while I will pickle some and save a few for salads, I have plenty more to share.

    Here is a great little blog about them http://www.buzzfeed.com/peggy/thing-you-must-plant-this-instant-cucamelons with great pictures.

    Save one or two from tonight and you should be able to try your own next year. This year's crop "volunteered" from last year so they are not hard to grow.

    If you mix them with other trellised plants, they might be tough to find and pick though. They tend to blend in and hide real well so next year they will have their own growing trellis.

    My mother-in-law just came in to remind me to take some more banana squash. We would have to empty our freezer to try to get all this in there.
