Spring has sprung

Hello Pacific Community Gardeners,
    It looks like we can finally say goodbye to winter.  Some of you are already planting, and that's good.  I will be subbing for Lloyd while he and Bobbie are on vacation.  Please feel free to contact me at suejimdoer@msn.com  or (314) 550-0866.

Also, thank you Brandy, for managing this blog.

New contact form

I have updated the contact form. This one should be a lot more user friendly. The new form contacts Brandy, Alice, Susan and Lloyd with your questions and comments, where as the old form contacted me only, and I had to forward to the proper person to get a response.
To our gardeners, we would love to see your pictures of the garden this year! Also, we are always open to your thoughts and suggestions.

May you have a plentiful harvest this year!!

FYI

If you use the contact tab on the blog, it is sent to Brandy. Normally you would get a response from me, Lloyd or Alice. However, for the next month or until further notice, your responses will come from either me, Alice or Susan.
