Standard Examiner Home & Garden Show this Weekend

Who's going to attend the Home & Garden Show this weekend at the Weber County Fairgrounds?  I am.  Susie is going to be there as well.  I hope that see many of you there too!  Not only can you watch the shammy guy clean up a mess, you can renew your newspaper subscription, and listen to Susie and I talk about growing some great veggies this upcoming year.

Thanks to all those who will be helping us at the Master Gardener booth by answering questions and sharing with the public our great program at the Ogden Botanical Gardens.  Our Master Gardeners truly are the best!  See you at the Home & Garden Show this weekend.
Kathy has lined up some really great speakers and they will be talking about some other fun gardening topics.  Here is the lineup:
