May Plant Sale a Success

partial clouds for sale day

Cloudy day did not dampen spirit of sale

The annual May Plant Sale 2013 was a success thanks to the volunteers growing plants and helping on sale day. The horrendous, flash downpour at 7:00 AM soaked everything but did not dampen the set-up crews spirits. The sun came out for the rest of the event. By having a volunteer at the entrance to help steer customers to the pick-up boxes, plant holding area and tally-uppers the lineups were minimal and flow meandered through the plants area to the cash and exit. We sold most of the plant stock in three hours. Plants left over were given to the gardens at Lake Trail School and Dawn to Dawn.

The winnower demonstration was a big success. I think the club members are looking forward to using it to help clean seeds this fall; I know I am.
