Squashed by your squash? Choking on all the cukes? Let's get together for a potluck and celebration of harvest season. Bring your bounty to swap and share at our garden harvest festival. Madge will also have a sign up sheet at the event for anyone who would like to learn to can, which will happen at a later date and with a limited number of people*

Please bring some food to share. Craig and I will provide drinks, some snacks and the venue. We'll talk pest control and plans for fall planting at this session so bring your tips/questions/research for discussion on everything from moth larva to winter lettuce...

*Madge's kitchen is tiny.

    In-spite of the rain we had a great time. Craig and Madge were wonderful hosts. Terry brought a "to die for " black berry pie and Ann brought some delicious goodies for us to enjoy. When it cleared we went to the yard to look at some of many fruit and plants. Madge gave me a strawberry plant, tomato, cukes and a pickle blueberry.
    I had a great time and invited everyone to meet at my place next time.

    Sorry, I've ben feeling under-the-weather and the rain makes the decision to stay home easy.

    Yes we're still on despite the downpours this morning. ;) we're prepping the homestead so: if it clears find us in back yard at side gate, if still rainy ring the front door where we'll be inside with snacks, cookbooks and garden books and more.
    3900 kirkham is right on corner at 43rd.

    Thanks everyone! We're going to keep it tomorrow just because it sounds like moving it would possibly lose us 2-3 people. We'll hope for the best but if it rains we'll be prepared to host inside for a bit as needed. We can certainly eat and chat indoors. Possible kitten alert though. :) rain is good for the gardens too, right? (if not as good for clothes)
    So see you all tomorrow!
    Craig and Madge Ps: think about suggestions for place/activity for October meetup.

    I have another function to attend on Sunday. Hope the rain does not materialize. I made some potato salad from potatoes in my yard so that everyone can try them. My first attempt.
    I started some pumpkins but had to remove them because they were growing like crazy and choking my blueberry plants. Live and learn. Sorry I won't be able to attend if it is Sunday.
    Hope to meet at my place next time so you guys can give me advise what to do and what to plant.

    We will send a message out too, but for those who are planning on coming:
    We learned that there's a 40% chance of rain tomorrow (which is mostly a good thing since we need it, but...) It would put a damper on things if we want to be outside. It's very tropical and there's even a chance of thunderstorms. It could also end up amounting to nothing and be warm and sunny tomorrow. HOWEVER, of those of you who are coming or considering it, would you be able to do Sunday instead if we needed to move it due to the weather risk?

    Can you either reply here or email us at [masked] or [masked] to let us know if you could do Sunday instead (same time and place) or prefer to leave it Saturday and take our chances. We can always move inside to our house but it's not as fun and garden-y as being out. Let us know TODAY so we can inform all tonight. Thanks! /Craig and Madge

    Did we mention this is also a chance to meet our new kitten? (Sadly our backyard cat passed away this summer.) Not 100% sure whether our kitten will be yard-approved yet so you may have to come into the house to see her. :) More details to come and see some of you soon!

    I have to train someone at the Botanical Garden that day, bummer. Have fun. One of these months I'll actually get to come over. I'm spending all 3 days at the Heirloom Expo this week and hearing so many fabulous talks! I even got the ashitaba plants I've been wanting and more purple tree collards. It's a gardeners dream! I might need an intervention soon to stop me from buying unique edible perennials!

    And we'll take suggestions of locale and/or offers to host the next Meetups here at the event (or online if you prefer). Thanks!

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.
