I can bring a loaf of home-made bread machine bread, or two, but that's not good for sandwiches, it's just good. But I'm not sure if I can be there in time...maybe I should bring a dessert so it's less time-sensitive. Ginger cookies? Both? I have another potluck picnic earlier that day! But it's easy to throw an extra loaf into the bread-machine.

Stephanie...are you bringing cake, cookies, brownies or what?

Carrie...I will put you down for one loaf homemade bread, and ginger cookies. That way if you don't make it in time for us to enjoy the bread with the meal, we can eat cookies!

Will plug in the dish Josephine.

Yes, and you are in charge of it!!! LOL! Please... I did put the Door Prize instructions in the first post of the attendance thread also.

Everyone: Please bring one door prize for each person in your party. Make it simple, low cost and garden related if possible. It can be a re-gift, usable item, or new. We have had many bring dried manure, potting soil, pots, books, gloves, and plants. We will assign a number to your name tag as you sign in. Later we will draw numbers at random for the gift held up. It will be yours if your number is call; unless you brought it or choose to switch with someone else later.

Too much is going on this week. I'm afraid that I won't be bringing anything homemade this time. Is there anything that we are particularly in need of that I can pick up at a grocery store?

Sybil will have drinks and HOT coffee she says.

Carrie...we leave the food out and graze on it so there will be plenty left for you when you come. Just glad you will be there.

That is more important!

I've got to catch fish and load them, then on the way. Stopping to pick up stuff too. I need to be there to help set up. We walked the dogs this morning and it isn't really bad at all.
