    Sounds great. The “Event Details” section says it’s on the 8th, not the 22nd (I’m guessing the 22nd is correct), otherwise the story is too late.

      Yes, Aug. 22, Brian – thank you and I’ve corrected the report.

    Dang it! I cannot attend. I’m about tired of the tomato/squash/peppers/cucumbers I’ve got growing now. I would have loved going to this workshop. Hopefully, SGN will have presentation and write an article on it.

    Yes! Welcome back and so sorry the spectrum found it necessary to “beat you up”.
    This too shall pass, however, we all make mistakes and this is how we make better
    choices in the future 🙂

    Caligirl, I’ll take some of your tomato/squash/peppers/cucumbers 🙂 and then you’ll have time to plant peas and corn and I’ll take some of those too. I’m just teasing but seriously, I’m jealous you have a garden….one day, I’m gonna have a garden too 🙂
