I've finally set the day for the next Open Garden. It was tough to do as there are no weekend days without competing garden events that we'll also be attending -- often multiple events! We also did not want to go past October as November can be freezing here -- with dreary rain likely -- and that is not just fun. So I'm going with Columbus Day Monday since the Federal and local governments have it off as do local schools and many workplaces. I've invited several local artists to set up here as well and will invite the general public, our readers, and anyone who has contributed to the magazine to stop by.
Here are the details:
