We survived a cold December. We survived frost damage and the gardens continue to thrive. This may be the best season yet. Cold temperatures actually are a benefit to many plants. Insect activity is down as well as mold and fungus activity. Fruits such as citrus and tomatoes produce a higher sugar contact when temperatures drop. Kumquats will not ripen until evening temperatures drop. Cabbage, kale, broccoli and collards enchance there flavors.
We are mourning the loss of one of our most actives members until she became ill, Marsha Mc Creary will be missed by all of us. We have also purchased a memorial plaque for the garden to remember two of our founding members, Dane and Betty Lonborg who passed away this summer.
