Back to School

Jilda and I've had gardens forever, or at least it seems that long. Some years we've had bountiful harvests, and some years, our garden looked like the grapes of wrath.
Becoming a better gardner is something that's been on my todo list for years, but I never got around to it.
A few weeks ago, Jilda saw a note in the paper announcing Master Gardener's Classes. The course of study requires a 13-week commitment. Students must attend classes from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.
I thought to myself, there's no time like the present. When I looked at my Vision Board, I had a picture of a beautiful garden right there in the middle of my board.
I have a lot going on right now, but I signed up any way, and classes started today. The first class was on soils, and the instructor is a Phd soil specialist. I know it sounds as dry as Brewton Snuff, but the class was fascinating.
I quickly learned why our crops are hit and miss.
I won't bore you with the details, but I'm excited about learning something new. I'll keep you posted as to my progress.
I hope you all have a remarkable week.

  1. Hi Rick, you will reap the reward and will get a lot of good benefits from this .

    Hope that you have the best garden ever.
    Take care.

  2. That sounds like a great course. And there really is no time like the present. Sometimes we just have to force ourselves to commit.

  3. This is exciting Rick. Hope you love the class!!

  4. Never too old to learn more. Actually, that sounds like a class I would like to take.
