Hope you made the festival, it was nice to see so many new faces and some we had not seen in awhile.
Harvest season is upon us, mornings are a little cooler. Watch out for those early frosts that are likely this month and next. I know you don’t want to think about it, but try not to let it affect your garden if you can help it.
See you all Tuesday .
Well we thought July came fast and now it’s August. Your gardens should be at their best and most productive. The weeds are the hardest to keep up with.
Come join us to talk about the Zucchini Extravaganza going on Sept 10 Starting at noon. It benefits the garden club so come sign up to help in anyway you can. What great recipe are you going to try and bring to the event with your zucchini? We welcome them all.
We will also be doing some garden cleanup so the walkways look their best for the herb garden walk through on Thursday the 17th.
Lots going on this time of year come see and hear about these events. We love to see you all there.
Never enough time in the summer for all that is going on, and didn’t get this notice in to give you all much time. We will be having another great potluck in the shade of the straw bale shed again at 6pm on Tuesday the 18th.
We have a few things to talk about and our gardens to brag about. We will talk about the event that happened at Durango Nursery. What we are looking to do with the proceeds. And of course Zucchini Fest which is coming up in September.
So come join us, bring some good food to share. I know there will be some great things to eat. Bring a chair if you want a place to sit, your own dinnerware is always appreciated. It should be great. And everybody has something in their garden they want to talk about!! Hope you can make it.
Summer is really here. So is the gardening season. Come to the meeting tomorrow the 20th in the Garden if we can. We will have a meet and greet potluck. There are so many new members we have not had time to get to know, so here is the chance.
Bring a dish to share, possibly a chair or two. We are going to try to have the potluck in the garden if it’s not so hot we can’t stand it. Sorry Don you may have to cook again! Or just bring something to share and we can all get together and talk gardening.
See you there at 6pm at the library garden.
Oh yeah, if you have signed up for a garden bed and just don’t have the time to get to it, let us know we still have people asking for beds, maybe we can let someone else use it or get you a gardening partner to help you out.
Don’t forget our annual Plant Exchange. Bring a plant to trade or exchange with your fellow gardeners. If you don’t have any, come anyway, we will take donations for plants . There will be a lot there already from club members. Also a bake sale, book sale and a garden related yard sale, all for donations to the club. Please come join us it will be fun!

PR Garden Club
This will be a great meeting this month, we have some wonderful Bee keepers who will talk about the Basics of Beekeeping. A very important part of gardening for all of us. What makes bees thrive and what to avoid in your garden to help them out. It should be very interesting and a wealth of information for everyone.
We will also be collecting our yearly membership dues of $10. Onions and potatoes are in the works along with Straw for straw bale gardens. Come join us and find out the deals the Garden Club Member can take advantage of. The dues we collect go towards being able to purchase these great deals ahead of time and then share them with members, as well as supplies for various projects we have in the works.
Start thinking about dividing those perennials in your yard for the plant exchange in May. If you dig them now you can pot them up now and they will be in great shape for the GC Plant Exchange. More about that next month. Come join us it will be great.
Our visit with Evenings Porch that was scheduled for tomorrow the 18th has been cancelled. We will reschedule for sometime in April.
