Quote of the month
"The best way to garden is to put on a wide-brimmed
straw hat and some old clothes. And with a hoe in one
hand and a cold drink in the other, tell somebody else
where to dig."

AUGUST SHOW RESULTS
This month we had a tie for first place: Sharon Bognar and Bob Clarridge (165 points), while second place went to Joyce Brown (145),
and third to Angie Andruss (57). They were followed by Ena Wassenaar (44), me (28), and Debbie Watson (19). What a wonderful
display from just a handful of people!
It would be nice if we had a little more competition: try bringing just a few items, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the results.
Best gladiolus and best vegetable went to Sharon Bognar, best daylily to Angie Andruss, and best decorative to Joyce Brown.
The show committee regulars, Sharon Bognar, Colleen Dunlop and myself went around with the judge to tally the points.
Another great speaker, Jeff Mason of Mason House Gardens,
introduced by Bob Clarridge.
Thanks to Pam Kuiper, we are very fortunate to have great speakers
at our meetings who add to our gardening knowledge.
