Farm Update: Garden is looking good! The cool weather is slowing it down a bit, but everything is coming and looking good! GPA Bert hilled the potatoes already - he counted 300 hills. Check out the pictures I took on Wednesday below.
Greenhouse Update: Pea Patch will be at Aggie Days Friday and Saturday this weekend (21-22 June). Come out and check out the Trade Fair and Parade. We are bringing plants and hanging baskets for purchase and will have our tent set up! We have been busy getting things ready all week. The greenhouse will be CLOSED on Friday as we haven't figured out how to be two places at the same time.
We are continuing to post plants for sale using Facebook and there has been a very positive response overall. Look for us on both the Strathmore Bidding Site and Strathmore and Area Garden Site for some great deals on plants!
Melody is now the Chair of Communities in Bloom Strathmore. A public announcement will be made shortly, and I will be addressing Town Council the third week in July. This year Strathmore is not competing in the judging this season - so it will give me a little time to acclimate myself.
I am a little nervous about this new position - but have a lot of great ideas brewing (great for the committee and town - not so great for sleeping). I am going this afternoon to meet with the Past President and get all of the past information and will be calling a meeting with the existing committee soon to discuss a direction for the association.
Well, I had better get my butt out to the greenhouse - lots of work to do today!
Until next time,
