The photo above and all the ones below are from the Fall Plant Sale this afternoon. Above are some of the many shrub options that we have available. Janice had more helpers this morning for pricing with Joy, Rob, Renee, Shirley, Karen and Tina. This group did a great job tagging this morning and shifting plants around under Janice’s direction. With the rain, inside projects abounded. Pat M. and Dr. Gredler worked on preparing lights for the Holiday Lights Show (HLS) while Eva cleaned and oiled tools. Gary B. had many indoor projects and Del was in to help too. Alan helped inside and then worked in the drizzle to finish an edging project at the Horticulture Center. Vern, Dave, Jim and Ron Y. worked on their carpentry projects and Dick H. helped the carpenters and assembled some new signs. Maury ran errands for us as did Gary S. Lloyd came in to help for a bit and Peg did a nice job organizing our tool shed. Bill O. worked on some equipment and there were many other volunteers coming and going all day. We also saw Cindy, Bobby K. and his wife, Marleen, Janet M., Janet V., Chuck S. and many others today.
Larry H., Janice and Big John all had a wide range of projects today. Janice’s focus was on the plant sale set up while Larry helped with some watering in the hoop house and lots of organization and clean-up. John ran multiple errands and had myriad tasks related to the gardens and the plant sale. It was a busy day but we’re poised and ready. Below is just a “small smattering” of what to expect at the sale. RBG Members are invited to the Members Only Pre-Sale tomorrow (9 am – 4 pm) where they get a sneak peak and 10% discount (over the entire sale). We’ll accept new memberships on the spot with shopping to follow immediately for anyone interested. The sale continues Saturday and Sunday (same hours) at the Horticulture Center.
