Hi Folks, I'm ready to take your order for Saturday's lunch!

Just take Arlene's link to the Saturday lunch article and look at the menu. It is okay if you just want to bring your own sack lunch...but don't miss the deadline on the catered lunch if that is what you prefer...I would hate to eat my BBQ in front of anyone without food! Hilarious!

We unpublished the articles and republished them so that are back on the front of cubit's home page, thus easier to find for you all to post to.

Deadline for ordering food has been extended

Merigold; the weather is finally coming around. I planted potatoes 2 or 3 weeks ago and caught a cold for my effort. I am just getting over it now. Have my tomatoes started in the house. I need to set up a new area for them as they didn't do exceptionally well there last year. I have 2 Apricot trees just loaded with blossoms, I'm hopeful this year, and mouth watering,,,,lol
Going to have to put in some corn in the next day or so.
Have a couple more fruit trees to put in to take the place of so much garden stuff.
See you there.

I'm still a novice so I dug mine about 2 weeks ago - so I could see if I killed them...or not. Hilarious!

Well, I battled the wind for a while and gave up. I'm such a weinie when it comes to cold, and it's cold here. I'd have probably killed them on the way to Boone anyway. I will pick up some annuals on the way there. How's that for lazy? Ha!
