It is in early May every year and we have lots to do. Arlene can help supply more info about where we need help the most. We have a pot luck, plant exchange, gently used garden items sharing, door prize gathering, speaker(s), tourism and maps info sharing, articles about the event, and other things I'm sure I missed right now.

There will be a more "private" forum for the planners to hash out details and a group created for email blasts for detailed planning info coming soon as well. We will still share info as progress is made on the Events and/or Chit Chat area, though. We plan on some articles, too, for those who have never attended to catch up on what they are missing.

We don't have it all sorted out yet as we are working this week on nailing down a date.

Hi; finally I think I am finding my way here. Thanks Arlene!
We are a 2some, Barbara and Russell Borkowski
We were otherwise known as RANDBPONDER
We live in Climbing Hill, though the system won't recognize that. Anthon is only 11 miles off.
I work way too hard in the garden but enjoy the fresh veggies.
I am planning to take a year off, with the exception of tomatoes and cucumbers, this next summer. Have quite a bit on the shelf so need to eat upThumb of 2010-11-11/russ_b/f15d66

Good to see you, Russ and Barb! I didn't realize you'd found your way over to Cubits. Glad Arlene flagged me down and reeled me in!

Hi Angie;
Guess I'm not quite into planning much yet but know I will have to start soon.
We do plan on seeing everyone this spring. Just keep thinking about everything I need to get done before winter really hits here. We have nephews and nieces in Boone and have invited them but without a definite date yet, they can't give an answer, so it's wait and see.
We haven't any snow on the ground yet and I'm not complaining either, however they are hinting rather strongly that this weekend we should have freezing rain and snow, maybe 4".
Just hope the oil companies don't starve us out. OUCH

Hi, Jan! Glad to see you here! You're probably the closest Cubits neighbor I have. LOL Jan and I both traveled all the way to Iowa for a Round-up, where we met, and learned we live about 15 minutes apart. Hilarious!

Sure wish these things were in June, after school is out, and I have more going on in the garden! LOL Will TRY to make May 14, but it's a long haul for a weekend trip.

I kinda feel the same way. Maybe it could be discussed in May to make it later. In the past I was told we shouldn't be changing the date. And all kinds of stuff about June weddings & graduations.

Hi everyone. Can hardly wait to greet old and new friends in gardening.
with 22" of snow on the ground, I sure don't know what I will be bringing for plants, does any one??

Arlene, I am still staggering around with the vertigo, nothing seems to be working. I would call you if I had a phone number!! Remember our last chat?

Won't be home on Saturday. Going to an all day plant seminar at the university in Eau Claire put on by master gardeners. Vendors in the hall ways, may I can find some thing I can't live without??
