Every year, for many, many years now, we hold an annual event at our nursery here in Perry, Ohio for our Backyard Grower Members. It’s a big deal for all of us because we spend all year communicating online, buying and selling plants to and from one another, helping each other growing problems, but seldom get the chance to meet face to face in person.
I’m not sure who took this photo because it was taken with Tim’s camera but he’s in the photo! Patty gained a new nickname, “Cookie”, at the Shindig. Long story but it seems to be sticking. I have to thank Tim for sending me a bunch of photos that he took at the event this year. Thank you Tim! The photos that you sent me are awesome and the ones of The Little Yellow Dog are priceless! I’ll put them in another post dedicated to her.
Most of you know that Duston works behind the scenes most of the time keeping all of our Internet stuff working, updated and creating new products. He’s in the office, I spend most of my time in the dirt.
I also have to thank Duston’s wife Lorelei because she took a ton of photos at this event and I will share them here as well. I think Tim captured a photo of her, but I’m not sure. If so I’ll post it. Thank you Lorelei for the awesome photos!
Every year this event becomes more and more precious to all of us.
