Where flowers bloom so does hope.
We are so very blessed to be gardeners.
We witness the natural beauty in our gardens whenever we wish.
We have faith when we cultivate and sow.
Then, our love makes them grow.
A garden is a friend you can visit anytime.
I wish I could be with my El Dedon friends, but for now, my silent friends in the garden will do.

Congratulations to all who made that possible. It took a trip 550 miles east to remind me just how special my hometown and the people who live here are. I’ve continued to keep this in mind as this year’s board plans the activities for the upcoming year....

Our raised bed hoop houses, like row covers and cold frames, function like a small greenhouse as they give some winter weather climate control, protect against hungry insects, allow a longer growing and harvest season, and provide a safe place to start new seeds and to set out transplants.
