President's Message | june 2017

summertime is here!

I hope you’re all enjoying your gardens with your new plants from our Plant Sale. It feels like it went by so quickly, working up to the sale, then the sale, and now so much free time. I’m enjoying this cooler weather working in my garden but I must say I miss seeing all of you on Saturday mornings. I’m still so amazed at the amount of plants we sold. I did love the variety of plants we had this year and apparently so did our customers! I’m already picking tomatoes (yum) and I’ve planted, among other things, a nice variety of chrysanthemums from the sale. I’m looking forward to seeing their blooms in the fall. As usual, I bought more than I planned but we always manage to find spots for them. Next we’ll be off on our field trip to Annie’s Annuals which I’m really looking forward to. Oh boy, more plants.

I hope you’ll all join us at the Selder’s on June 26 for our annual Summer Potluck. Come and get to know other DIGgers better, eat some great food and enjoy our Curious Container Competition. All members are invited and it’s always a lot of fun. Hope to see you there.
