President's Message

Presendents    Thank goodness, ‘Fall is in the Air’! I just love, love, love this wonderful weather, don’t you? Since the first day of
autumn is September 22nd, thought I’d pass along a few fall gardening to-do lists, courtesy of Sunset Magazine.
      For you veggie garden enthusiasts: transplant seedlings of bok choy, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, chard, collards, kale, leeks, lettuce, and spinach, plant about 18” apart. For the rest of us…visit the farmers
market!
      Plant trees and shrubs, while the soil is still warm to encourage their roots, soak up the winter rains, and be ready to explode with growth in the spring.
      Sow native wildflower seeds. Grow flowers tailored to our part of California by ordering a pack from the Theodore Payne Foundation. theodorepayne.org
      Divide and replant (or bring to the plant table :) crowded perennials such as agapanthus, coral bells, daylilies, coreopsis, dianthus, cannas, and many more.
      Take control of your irrigation by downloading a free copy of California Friendly: A Maintenance Guide of Landscapers, Gardeners, and Land Managers at bewaterwise.com. Also included: maintenance tips for hundreds of California appropriate plants.
      That’s it for now and certainly hope to see everyone at the Fall Fundraiser. See
everything you need to know about our wonderful luncheon, and the raffles and
auctions in this edition of the Cricket!

Your Co-Presidents,
Mary Dahlberg and Mimi Gizoni       2017-2018
