So the days are snowy and the nights are still long? All the more reason to look ahead to spring and a new growing season! With no outside speaker scheduled in January, we’ll have time to swap seeds and ask each other questions about gardening challenges and successes.
Seed swap. If you bring seeds you’ve saved from your own plants, please be ready with information about varieties, requirements, characteristics. Also welcome: open packets of extra seeds from commercial suppliers.
We'll also be electing FROG’s board of directors for 2017. Remember that to vote you must have already paid your 2017 dues or pay them in person at the meeting: $15 cash or check.
