Newsletter Interest Anyone?

I just today received in the mail our Nature Coast Master Gardener (FL) newsletter today , which I have the privilege of editing. If you would like to check it out,go to: http://www.ncmgfl.org/; then click the link News and Info. I am always interested in reading other newsletters as I learn from them. I'm always looking for ways to improve our publication.

How many other newsletter editors or contributors are out there with ideas to share?

Taking Stock in our Harvest in 2010

Snowy day in NE Ohio!

Jan. 3, 2010. What a snowy, blustery day it has been! It was snowing when we got up this morning and its still snowing this afternoon! We have a foot or more on the ground and its still coming!

I had a couple 3 gallon nursery pots that I cut the bottoms out of and slipped over a couple lilac trees to keep the dogs from peeing on… Continue

"Got stung by wasps on back of leg yesterday. Not sure how many got me, but working so hard in yard to clear and clean up. So relaxing today. No room in green bin even if I cut lawns too. Overcast here, not smoke."

Coleus, Coreopsis and Impatiens

"Thanks, Lyn. I love this 'Wasabi' coleus. The foliage is a beautiful chartreuse/bright yellow, it is vigorous and it loves full sun. One plant grows into what looks like a shrub!  Too bad it is only annual here. I will be taking and…"

Fairy Queen Surrounded by Yellow Blooms

"Thanks for the feedback. The tall perennial sunflowers self-seeded like crazy this year and I decided to leave them alone to see what happened. While I like this for a "one-time" show, that bed is starting to be too overcrowded and out of…"
