Table a discussion with 'The Book Thief'

Evening Ladies!

Thanks to everyone that took a minute to log on and vote for our upcoming Meet Up. Next Wednesday night, March 13th, we're going to discuss 'The Book Thief' by Markus Zusak. We're headed somewhere old and new to the area. This bar has gone through a few transitions and name changes, however, it was pretty fun the last time I was there with decent food and a great drink selection. Beal's Pickles n Pints is located directly across from Target in Willoughby in the same plaza as Chipotle, Just Add Water scuba and the hardware store.

Please RSVP soon, so I can contact the bar to reserve us a table in the main or side room.

Thanks! Amanda

    My boyfriend and I have railroad ties and are going to take a les on the above ground garden as discussed. Need any advice you might have as we are total novices. What a great discussion!!

      I've been told that railroad ties shouldn't be used for vegetable gardens as they have creosote and other chemicals that can leach into the dirt. Better to use untreated wood like pine or cedar.

      We used very old RR ties that were stripped. If you add a barrier layer, you'll be protected from any chemicals leaching into your dirt and it's a great way to block weeds. Our yard was prepped down to the bare ground first. Then we placed RR ties stacked 2 high - 1 wide x 4 long. The first layer of dirt was heavy clay ; about 4 - 5 yards. Then we bought organic worm compost soil to fill it to the brim. The 2nd year, we had to add 2 more yards, especially since we steal garden soil to fill pots. We fertilizer with our own worm composted soil and an organic all purpose NPK from Wood Prairie Farms. Throughout the season, we add in other organic matter depending on the crops.

    Because I joined the group so late I didn't get a chance to buy and read the book. :( I am looking forward to the next book and especially looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Sorry I'm going to miss this one. Would rather eat, drink and discuss with all of you than working in Pitt :(

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
