5TH ANNUAL WISTERIA SOIREE WAS THE BEST YET!

Sorry it has taken me two weeks to report on the soiree but the demands of getting the garden in have been very pleasurable though time consuming.  What a great gathering we had this year.  Thirty gardeners showed up and enjoyed the Frogmore stew and steamed blue crabs under the wisteria.  The weather was perfect and the midges did not get the invitation in time but one of our swarm of bees showed up and gathered above us.  The wisteria arbor was at its peak in all its glory.

I am pleased to announce that a couple new members joined our team and will help us immensely in our gardening choirs.

I am really enjoying your posts!
I have also forwarded them to my brother who lives in Florida and is quite a gardener himself. He bought 16 bath tubs from a plumbing supply house going out of business and has stacked them in a very nice pattern. He now has a very nice raised container garden (each with a nice drain hole) which can be seen from space on google maps!

Hi Ruthie:

You can see our garden from google maps also. Individual plants can be discerned. I have been reading a lot about AQUAPONICS lately where you grow plants in a soil-less median that is constantly irrigated from a nutrient rich tank where fish are grown (for consumption). It is supposed to be 10 times as productive as raised beds with very little work required. Your brothers bath tub garden would really work well as it is complete with a hole at the bottom of a waterproof container. He should research it on the web and see if he is interested. I may try it (one bed) as an experiment just to see if it is all it is made out to be. Tell him to subscribe to the blog so he will get a notification each time I post.

Good to hear from you.

Gordon
