SEED SWAP, ELECTION OF NEW BOARD &
FROG-to-FROG Q&A
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.  Now's the time to plan for the 2015 Plant Sale!

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.

Election:  Note: only paid-up members of FROG will be eligible to vote in January’s election of a new board of directors. And as the FROG board announced in last month’s newsletter, annual dues will rise for next year, to $15.  Please pay your $15 to treasurer Linda Tegtmeier  at the January meeting. Another possibility:  complete the form that appears on the last page of the newsletter and mail it with your dues.

As in years past, members of FROG will vote for a slate of board directors.  Thereafter, board members will choose officers for the coming year. If you’d like to be a candidate for the board, please contact Betty Jo Page or another board member.

Q & A: To get us thinking, Charles Mettler offers the following question to all attending: Have any members present practiced seed-saving for 5 years? (If none for five years then for 4, 3, 2 or 1) If yes - specify the varieties and elaborate on their experience.

Colorado Gardener/Writer/Editor/Publisher
JANE SHELLENBERGER
To say “She wrote the book about organic gardening” is in Jane Shellenberger’s case not merely a compliment but plain fact.  The author of Organic Gardener’s Companion: Growing Vegetables in the West (Fulcrum Publishing ), Jane has for many year also been the publisher and editor of Colorado Gardener magazine.

Come hear what a hands-on expert has to say about some of the challenges of growing organic vegetables in this part of the world.
