Just a reminder... no planning meeting Monday night
Everything at the garden seems to be running smoothly and all of our current plans are on track. And with Thanksgiving just around the corner, we decided to cancel our planning meeting that would normally be scheduled for November 21 (always the third Monday of the month).
But watch for news about our December meeting, which might double as a holiday party at a board member's house. Stay tuned!
Let's eat! Check out the new recipe page on our website
When we meet in the garden, the conversations always turn to food prep. It seems that everyone has a favorite recipe incorporating the produce we grow. So our president, Colleen, just created a "Let's Eat!" page on our website where you can find some of these recipe ideas for your own use in the kitchen.
She's organizing the recipes by the type of fruit or vegetable used, and each food type has an additional link that provides you with some useful nutrition information.
You'll see that our new webpage is very much a work in progress, but we're announcing it now because we'd like our members to start compiling recipes they'd like to share. Then by the time we send out the next newsletter in December, we should have some simple instructions worked out to get your recipes posted on our site. Get ready, fellow foodies!
We need bagged leaves for composting
The leaves fall in Autumn, and that's a good thing because we need lots of them to make our compost for organic soil. If you've raked up some bags full in your yard, don't take them to the curb. Drop them off at our community garden instead ... you can just place the bags over the chain link fence in the back through the alley.
But please note that we can't use leaves from yards that have been treated with either pesticides or with fertilizers (no donations from TruGreen customers, for example). Thanks!
And finally, Happy Thanksgiving to all!
All the best,
Your friends from Seminole Heights Community Gardens
