Day of Labeling

Today was insanely busy but we had our grounds staff and volunteers in full motion. We all dodged raindrops today and while it never really warmed up, everyone experienced extended and repeated dampness! We had a great tagging crew (see below) of Tina, Becky, Edie, Olive, Karen, Gerrie, Kath, Eva, Kathy, Shirley, Gene, Lucy, Sharon, Barb B., Barb C., Robert and Renee. The crew put labels in thousands of vegetables and priced our perennials and herbs. We had more plant deliveries and plenty of more bagged compost arrived as well ($6/bag). The labeling project was a monumental task which we tried to accommodate inside as best we could with the inclement weather. Our grounds crew of John, Brian, Bob and myself had a busy day with plenty of activity both out in the gardens and related to the plant sale preparations at the Horticulture Center. We also saw Urban, Maury, John J., Bill O., Dr. Gredler, Alan M., Dave K., Janice, Mike, Sondra, Alan, Dick H., Jeff and many others.
