Hi, I haven't been on this site for a while. The recession side tracked me for about 3 years. But I was looking at the list of members in my area and noticed the list has grown quite a bit. So I'm curious, has anybody tried to have a local DG party? I wonder how many people I already know are on the list.
Hi Josephine and Pat. How are ya'll? We have survived the recession so far, though I hear there is more trouble coming. But for now we are very busy. I wish I had time to go to an RU. I hope you have a great one. Maybe next year I can do an RU.
I think about those RUs all the time, especially when I look at my ragged yard. I lost a lot of the plants I had in the gh because the shade cloth fell off and we didn't have time to put it back on there. We had such a warm winter and every time we had a warm afternoon my plants got really bad heat stress. The fan just couldn't keep up with the heat. But having fewer plants is actually a good thing because I have very little time for plants. Pretty much any energy I have gets used at the shop. I try to work at least 1 hour every day in my flower beds there. I was supposed to landscape them long time ago, but there just been very little time or money to do it. I have made a little progress but it's very slow.
For anybody who sees this thread and has an interest in a "party", I'm not talking about any thing really fancy and not necessarily a RU. I'm just curious who all these people are on the DG roster. A couple of years ago I looked at the list and there were not more than four of us.
thanks Sheila! I looked in the addy exchange for these people and found out most of them haven't even started a single thread. I checked on about 20 people. I'll keep looking. I was surprised there is no mention made of when they joined. I can't imagine who would join a site like this and not post anything.
