June in January ?
IGC does not hold meetings in January and February nevertheless we get together for lunch to "keep in touch" and trade planting ideas for the next growing season.
Monte Cellos proved to be a great choice for a cold winter day.Seed Catalogs were shared and Jessie brought some of her beautiful hand knitted hats and scarfs which were admired and purchased by some of the members. The more avid "gardners" went to the nearby Best Feed Store after lunch.

Dear Gardening Friends---With the artic blast decending upon us, we suddenly drifted into winter. Hope we have all finished putting our garden beds to sleep. I myself need a day or two of warm days to finish my outside chores. It is not winter yet so maybe we will still get warmer days. Enjoy this favorite time of the year and try not to think of gardening until after the holidays. Let's give our gardening minds a rest and wake them up again next spring.
Christmas is coming and for our annual celebration I am looking forward to our Christmas Luncheon on Wednesday, December 3rd at the Narcisi Winery. Hope a lot of us are coming to join the celebration. If you wish to participate in the gift exchange please bring a $20 garden-related Christmas gift. Please do not forget to put a nametag on your gift with your name on it. Meeting starts at 11:00 AM. We will have beautiful green centerpieces to raffle.
Enjoy and stay warm and do not get caught up in the holiday hustle and bustle. Wishing you the happiest of holidays and goodwill to all!
