    Good morning neighbors:

    With the mild winter we’ve had (so far) this year it’s made me think about yard work much earlier than normal. Apparently, our friends at the extension office are having similar thoughts, please read the information below.

    This is just a reminder that the deadline to register for our "A Day of Gardening" is Feb. 21st. The sessions are filling up fast. I have attached the link to our website where you can either print the registration form and mail with your check or register online with credit card payment. Don't forget to select the breakout sessions you want to attend and if you need a vegetarian meal.

    We also wanted to let you know about the program below on Raising Chickens which has not been advertised yet.
