We had a great turn out and great weather for today's Garden planting . Our Membership Dept.  organizes Family events every other Saturday. This week we had about 14 family's and plenty of  helping hands . The kids planted; lettuce, cabbage, Broccoli raab, Bok Choy, green onions, all types of salad greens , lots of kale, and 5 varieties of radishes and much more .   The vegetables and herb's produced are used in our kitchen  and featured on our salad bar.  The kids will return in February  for our Garden Harvest .. Thanks' for all the helping hands !

Progress Report 10-27

We had an interesting weather week at the Club, last Monday we had  a down pour of 3.25 inches of rain  ..  The rest of the week was light persistent rain clearing up just in time for our annual Fall Festival.. This morning at 6 am  the temp's were  in the low 60's and low humidity !!  One of my favorite things is recycling the bales of hay from Fall Fest , the hay is used to  mulch the garden area it helps to conserve moisture and is great for weed control .. All the plants are growing at a normal rate . And I have all the supplies for Planting November 8 ..
