Christmas Brunch / Secret Santa at Logan Reserve

December 2, 2018 from 8am to 11:30am
Please bring along a plate of food to share. There will also be a raffle table.  This has become a bit of a Christmas tradition. Everyone who brings along a gift to contribute to this table will go home with something new for themselves.  In previous years people have brought along unusual plants, cookbooks, tools, really anything you think a fellow gardener may be interested in. Hope to see you there.See More

The weather is getting warmer.

I can't wait to plant my snake beans again -very soon. Despite their fibrous nature they are great cut up small.
