Some Enchanted Evening

Thanks to Irene Hogstrom and Mark Bragen and Roberta and Skip Muehlhaus for hosting a large group of gardeners at their homes on Aug. 20. Both homes have many charms, and we were able to see them in some of the best light of the day. Thanks to Roberta for decking out her gazebo to create a delightful garden party, and thanks to all who brought food to share.

Harvest Fest

We would love to hear about your 2014 garden at our Annual Harvest Fest on Wednesday, August 20 at 6:30 PM. This year, we are taking our fest on the road. We will first meet at the home of Irene Hogstrom and Mark Bragen at 1232 Gilbert Avenue. Irene and Mark have created a Victorian garden in their front yard, and Irene will give us a twilight tour. 

Then, we’ll head over to the home of Roberta Muehlhaus, 1868 Grant Street, for a pot-luck social time with small bites. Bring a sweet or savory appetizer or dessert, and feel free to use what you grew. This is a great time to ask other gardeners about their season and compare notes. At this meeting, we will also vote on our new board.

RSVP to Roberta at Remember that the mosquitoes may attend too, so be prepared with repellent.
