Okay that's not exactly true... not even close, lol. There are other things that have been going on; the Children's Garden has been planted, the new beds at the Pace Building are getting filled with soil, and they're almost ready for some tomato plants! The curtains have been installed inside the Pace Building with a noticeable difference in the noise and echo. The fruit trees have been fostered so they can be cared for until the fall sale.
The Plant Health specialist training went off well, and sounds like it's setting a high bar for future specialist training courses. It sounds like all Master Gardeners will benefit from this new approach, not just the specialists!
The irrigation system has been set up with the black walnut trees at the Pace Building, and should help germination rates quite a bit.
Maintenance on the PACE building has brought about some welcome changes. It included windows being repaired and painted, ceiling painted, curtains added and other general maintenance.
By the time I get this posted the Texas Master Gardener conference will be over. Three of our members planned to attend, and we can look forward to some information from them about events there. The South Texas Home Garden and Environmental show in Floresville is also over by now, and we had members there as well, manning a booth.
So, yea, there's always things going on in the GMG, and I'm sure I missed almost as many as I mentioned... BUT...the Biggie is still the Spring Plant Sale. If you didn't make the meeting March 1st and you didn't sign up on the sheets for volunteering... basically show up at Texas Heroes Square on Friday March 23rd at 8:30. If we don't need people there you can go to the greenhouse around 9 a.m. On sale day, Saturday March 24th we start at 7 a.m. Try to be there by 8 for final instructions and questions...
