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?

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

"Thank you, Joan! It really is a labor of love. My husband and I spend every spare minute working in the garden (We work full-time, so we usually only get to be in the garden on the weekends.)"
