President's Memo

The Weeds are Taunting Me! 

For some reason my family thinks I’m a bit of a klutz. Maybe it’s because I have a tendency to do things like fall on vacation and break a rib. One measly rib has put me out of action for 6-8 weeks. I can’t lift anything, ride my bike, go out on the boat or lay down until it heals. The doctor even told me to stay out of the garden. I don’t deserve such a cruel punishment. I have things to do out there. 

On Sunday I couldn’t take the weeds mocking me anymore. When Chris went into the house to get our dinner I attacked the closest ones, only to have them retaliate by adding another hour or two to my painful banishment. My already put upon “staff” (aka my husband, Chris) was not happy with me. He may go to work and decide not to come home. 

It was good to see those of you who turned out for our Summer Potluck. Betty & Jack Gaughan have a great yard and we consumed some tasty food while we explored the art and plants that reside in their garden.

Enjoy your time in the garden. If the weeds quit taunting me I might be able to relax out in mine.

Robin Choate
(2014 President)

What is DIG?

Our purpose is to encourage interest in gardening through education and beautification of our community.  

We hold our meetings from 7:30-9:30 p.m. on the fourth Monday of every month, at the Methodist Church at 809 Second Street, which is on the corner of Maple, directly across from Liberty High School.

Drop into one of our meetings if you have a love for growing things — or even if you just want a reason to got out of the house and meet some friendly folks.  

We are a fun group of people.   Nobody’s a stranger twice.  You’ll see!
