Deployment Send Off

 

 

Hello Friends, 

This weekend we will be attending the deployment send off for our son and the rest of the deploying soldiers.

 

 Our prayers for our troops.

157th MEB & 357th Signal Co 

 

The send off is to provide a time for state, brigade and battalion senior leadership the opportunity to recognize and thank the Soldiers and their Families for their service and dedication to the state of Wisconsin and country as they embark on the federal overseas mission.

Seed Saving from the Garden

By Carla TePaske of Cameron WI ~ The Little Garden That Could


Late summer is here. We can see the change in the daylight hours, cooler evenings and the hint of autumn color. Now is the time to start to collect seed pods. If you have never done this before, start with something easy like poppy, marigold or zinnia. Collect the seed once the flower has began to fade at the close of the season. Squash, pumpkin, pepper and tomatoes are also easy to save seed from. Be sure to dry the seed or seed head, once dry, split the seed head and harvest the seeds. Envelopes work well to store your seeds. Be sure to remember to label your envelope.


Do not forget to write in your garden journal. What worked well this season? What went totally wrong? Write down ideas you have seen and want to create in your garden next season. Did you taste any vegetables or herbs that you want to grow next garden season, write down the varieties, trust me, one forgets when April rolls around. This way when spring comes you will be all set to get into a new season of gardening.


Do not forget to order your spring flowering bulbs.
