Welcome to seed catalog season! Are you buried in them? I went a little crazy last year with my gardens and I was running out of room as it is. Where will I put more plants? But, my husband plans to expand his vegetable garden, so I'll try and focus on that and start him some vegetable plants to keep myself busy. And I can always grow some things for our plant sale.
I'm looking forward to getting to know our club again. I haven't been a regular attendee over the last few years, so there are a lot of new members that I will need to get to know. So far I am impressed with how active our members are; it will make my transition into being president very easy.
The purpose of the Avon Garden Club is to promote knowledge of and enthusiasm for gardening. Also to acknowledge our responsibility for stewardship of the earth and all it's natural resources. Further, we will contribute to the beautification of our community. We will encourage an atmosphere of friendliness and kinship with all gardeners.
