OK, OK, OK, we are FINALLY going to have it! It seems like a lifetime since our last one and the emotional lift is dearly needed.
It will start at 6:30 P.M. and be held at the UT Extension Office 2105 Midland Rd. Shelbyville, TN 37160. That is about as formal as we get. A place, date and time.
After that, we are all about friends (old, new, or anything in between) who love to talk dirt (garden dirt) or as we will find out this Friday, gardening WITHOUT dirt. (almost)
More about that later, but right now let me explain to those uninitiated in the ways of Weed'em and Reap what we are all about. About 7 or 8 years ago a few of us joined together to talk gardening.
We decided we did not need bylaws, officers or minutes of the meeting and since we do not have any fees, we did not need a treasurer's report either. We just wanted to talk about our gardens, triumphs, challenges, and yes, even our defeats.
Now a little, tiny bit of organization is beneficial so we eventually morphed into two meetings a month where one is at the extension building where we take more time for learning, researching and sharing information and the other is held at various restaurants or wherever we choose to "socialize" with our gardeners who have become friends.
We still talk gardening but more socializing goes on than presentations or research the internet for points of interest.
Hey, the rain is coming down! It was actually getting a little dry up here on the hills outside Bell Buckle. I just laid some new gravel down on our driveway and can't wait to see where it ends up with hard rain. LOL
OK, so now you know that we are a loose-knit group of gardeners from in and around Bedford County, TN. If that sounds interesting, COME ON DOWN!
