I just posted Dan's presentation schedule on the PNW classes and presentations thread, have a look when you get a chance everyone! http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/820532/
Credit for all of the events in the calendar goes to Sue, she has been working her fingers to the bone :0)
Huh? where? which thread? which calendar?
I am so confused. I must have smoked the calendar by mistake.
Is there a calendar? Is there a thread for items to go on it? What is this thread for? My confusion? Confusing others?
I am so confused
at least my DL says so.
Hey Rob - check the first post in this thread. The calendar link is in the fourth paragraph of that post.
This thread is to ask for things to be added by naming the event.
Rachel, I clicked on the Dan H link but got no responce. Jim
Probably should consider adding the calendar for the Center for Urban Hortaculture calendar to ours. It lists a number of great events for all gardeners. http://depts.washington.edu/urbhort/html/education/events.php

Vashon Island Garden Tour (benefit for Vashon Allied Arts) Saturday and Sunday, June 21st and 22nd. $20 per person through May 31st, then $25 after that. http://www.vashonalliedarts.org/specialevents/gardentour/gardentour.htm
Where are the similar activities in Oregon posted? I'm thinking PNW includes more than the Seattle area. ;)
There is no specific researcher, and those who are adding the events are volunteers.
That's why we created this thread. We need you to post them here so they can be added to the calendar. What are the specific events in Oregon (or WA or ID, etc.) that you'd like to see?
The Mason County Master Gardener's Plant Sale is May 10th, 9:00 to 4:00 at the Mason County Fairgrounds just north of the Shelton exits on Hwy #101.

I would like to know when any dahlia tuber sales would be here in Oregon.
Here is another event that probably should be on the calendar. Maybe we can also have a DG gathering at it.
Apparently Cisco, the Man will be there, along with Kellogg Products (manufacturer of Gardener and Bloome, Dr. Earth, Greenhouse, Gardener, and more products).

Okay, I am really going to expose my stupidity. I have only been living here for the past 3 years and you would think that I would know by now what zone I am in. I know I am PNW but what would you classify me as I live near the coast of Newport, Oregon. Just don't classify me as stupid. HEheh
Okay, now I really feel stupid as I reread my thread as it said right there that I am in zone 8b. Okay, you can all have a good laugh. You have my permission. Hehehehehheh
We are all here to support each other, no need to feel silly. Come visit the other PNW threads, they are great!

Harstine Island Garden Club Plant Sale
May 3rd 9-2 p.m. at the Harstine Community Hall
3190 East North Island Drive, Shelton, WA 98584
An update on the Mason County Master Gardener's Plant Sale May 10th. We have a Master Gardener who grows Dahlias and tomatoes for our plant sale. He usually has about 800 of each, all different varieties. His Dahlia bulds sell for $1.00 a tuber and his tomatoes are $1.50. We also grow a variety of tomatoes and other veggies. The Rhododendren Society has their show on that day and sometimes the Heath and Heather gal has heathers for sale. We are known for our great tomatoes and with this weather, now would be a good time to come on over and pick up some for your garden.
Oh how I wish I could. It is just an impossible venture for me just now. I am on Meds that wouldn't let me drive. I would die for some dahlia bulbs. Well, not die but I sure wish I could be there. My meds are because I almost did die. Hehe. Not funny I know.
Well we might as well laugh at this stage, it's good for you. If you would dmail me your address I will get some and mail them to you. Just let me know how many and what colors you would like and I'll pick them up. He has some almost black ones that are beautiful.
Geez, I would more or less die for some dahlias at that price too! That is a great deal and from a person who must know a lot about dahlias. Where is Union?
Up north on Highway 101 from Olympia. If you type Union, Washington in at maps.google.com, you can see where it is.
The sale will be at the Mason Co. Fairgrounds which is just north of Shelton on Hwy #101. It is right next to the runway for the airport.
Wow, that is so nice of you to offer to do that
for me. How sweet is that.
If you could get me 20 tubers all different colors. Your choice I would be glad to do that. My address is
174 NW 10th St
Give me your addy and I will mail you a Money Order or a check which ever you prefer. I could just mail you the cash to make everyones life easier. I will just hide it in a card. I guess I should wait to see what the postage will be.
Thank you so much for the glorious offer.
I bet that a flat rate box would be the best bet for shipping Jan. You can pack it full and it can weigh up to 70 pounds all for one flat rate! :0) They even have two different sizes now http://www.usps.com/shipping/flatrate.htm?from=priority&page=flatrate You will have much wonderful color this summer/fall from those dahlias!
How would you like me to send you the money... before the show or before you send them. Let me know so I can make sure that you have the cash available. I'd hate to have you have to spend your cash on me. You probably have lots to buy yourself. I am glad I'm not going or I would most definately spend more then $20 bucks. I know me only too well. Heheh
Gourdbeader I'm going to DMAIL you and let you know how to send the $$$.
Willowwind2, is Union on hood canal? I seem to recall going through there when doing the loop up to hood canal bridge, and then south to Brennon. and down around the dog leg of the canal. Jim
Yes Jim, Union is on Hood Canal on Hwy#106. Our son lives down the road from you in Olalla.
HI Jim, I wish I had time to come and look at your Hostas. Maybe some other time I will be able to come over. I love Hostas and my favorite is a large sage green and white one that I've had for years. It gets about 36 inches high and wide. I have about nine different ones and am limited by my small yard and the deer.
