Something strange is afoot in gardens

  • Aug 20, 2008 at 12:00AM

This has been the strangest gardening year that I can remember. But, at my age, there are many things I can’t remember, and many things I think are strange. Maybe we have had more unusual years than this after all. If the phone calls and visits we’ve had to the Extension Office Master Gardener Clinic are any indication though, it has absolutely been a strange gardening year.

It’s official: the city finance director is projecting that the city will go $4 million in the hole this year, a loss of almost one in every six dollars of the taxes, fees, grants and loans taken in.

I don’t know about you, but I’ll never forget where I was when I watched the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. I was in a Super 8 Motel in Ferndale.
