Another year is going down in the record books. The weather was great in the spring and it's great now. A wonderful long season. Hopefully we will get our snow soon (but man it has been nice). I hope we don't pay for it next season.
Extreme gardener Todd Cislo is opening up his house for people to check out his winter garden. Many of you saw him talk at Tomato Fest and the Master Gardeners Seminar. It is a must if you are interested in extending your garden. I will have more information later in the newsletter.
We will be closing for the season December 21, 2012. We do sales by appointment during the off season call me at (928)-853-3975 to schedule an appointment.
Until then we still have some Yum Yum Winterizer, Agribon, plastic clips for hoop houses, and of course gift certificates and all kinds of other goodies. So come on in and say hi.
Hours: Mon-Sat 10-4
Viola's New Year's Resolution
I know that we haven't sent out a newsletter in a long time, I will be better at it next year. Our excuse is that A.J. (our new addition) has been a handful. Not really, but we will go with that. This warm December weather has gotten us inspired and we are ready to go for next year. I have even got some good ideas for my blog Life In The Garden. That's right I'm coming back and can't wait to get started (really this time).
Shalene will be back to do some if not all the writing for the newsletters. We might even be able to talk her into writing a little blog that goes more into the science of gardening. We are going to put her botanist degree to work.
This is an email from Todd:
I look forward to you attending and would also like to extend a warm welcome to anyone else who may be interested.
In summary, folks who stop by can see first-hand simple, inexpensive, usable techniques that can make 4-season gardening possible, and, view the progress of this winters crops right before the Solstice. As Peggy Pollack, senior lecturer at NAU's biology department stated after visiting the site of the tour, that actually seeing the techniques in person was the best confirmation of the information recently given during the presentation to her sustainability class on 4-season gardening.
Several FUSD and NAU classes will be attending in addition to community leaders, students, business owners, Master Gardeners and Flagstaff residents of the Winter Gardening Seminars given this past summer.
Please forward to anyone who you feel may find this tour interesting and I look forward to meeting anyone interested in learning how to grow- 4-season- more veggies in their backyard, or commercial techniques that can be garnered from the experience this type of growing has unveiled.
Nicely put Todd. I will be going to check it out. There will be pictures on our website if you can't make it.
Thanks For The Great Season
We have a lot to be thankful this year, and you, our customers are on the top of it. We have the best customers ever. We wouldn't be around without your support and just caring about us. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and we will see you in March.
We would also like to thank our employees who make it a pleasure to come to work and volunteers that helped out with the Haunted Garden. Without them we it wouldn't be able to happen.
