Hello Friends, It seems as though this time of year comes and goes so fast. With many of us attending banquets, awards nights, and graduations, its often late evenings when getting home in May, but its never to late, or I’m never too tired to take a stroll through my garden. There is always something to tie up, take down, get out, put in, or altogether straighten up. While still early in the season, this has been the case as of late due to some severe weather that rolled through our area the last few days. While it sometimes can put a damper on our garden season, other than the soil, the weather is the most vital part to our gardens health and harvest.

With all that going on around campus, we have managed to have a great meeting this month. Participants showed up in a gully-washer downpour and were treated to take a course on our Red Bird Farmers Market. Afterwards we made our way to God’s Storehouse where we distributed participants flats of a variety of summer plants including, Tomatoes, Peppers, Watermelon and Cantaloupe. Although the rain was coming down, we were all so happy and eager to get these plants and put them in the ground. Its much prettier on campus today. The birds are singing and the sun is shining and there are blue skies over Red Bird.
