Happy New Year!

by Leslie Cox; Tuesday; January 3, 2023

I don’t know about you, but I always look forward to the start of a brand new year. So much potential hidden in the days, weeks and months ahead. A surprise, or surprises, just waiting to be unwrapped as soon as your feet hit the floor each morning.

I admit, I am an eternal optimist. This year’s garden is going to be better because I have taken the lessons last year’s garden challenges presented to heart. And it was certainly a tough year last year.

Top of the list was the water issue. We were restricted to hand watering two days a week for almost eight weeks due to a cracked main pipe at our Oyster River Water Station. Naturally, it fell smack in the middle of the drought period and when summer temperatures were soaring. It still remains to seen if we lost any of our plants.

And then there was all the snow which started to fall in the last week of November. So thankful  it did not stay around as long as it did last year! Looking around the garden, it appears only one of our Cornus spp. (dogwood) is showing severe damage. Hoping the branches on some of the shrubs and plants which are dangerously bowed ground-ward will bounce back into position once sap starts flowing through their veins once again.

Like I said. I am an optimist…especially when it comes to the garden. And in spite of the continued need to be water-wise in the garden, I am enthusiastically thumbing through the three seed catalogues which have arrived in my mailbox so far.

Happy New Year to all my friends and readers! Wishing everyone a beautiful and bountiful garden in 2023!

Workshop registration error is fixed!!

by Leslie Cox; Friday; September 2, 2022

Great news!! Thanks to James, my wonderful, problem-solving tech guy, the problem with getting to the payment portion of the workshop registration process is now fixed! The problem? I missed one measly little hyphen in the coding. It sure does not take much when you are talking computer coding.

If you are interested in attending my Putting the Garden to Bed workshop, it is on Thursday, September 22, 2022 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. You can register here. (The workshop will be via Zoom.)

If September 22nd does not fit into your schedule, let me know through my Contact page here. If there are enough people, I will offer a second session.

I look forward to seeing you in the workshop!

Registration is open…but there is a wee problem

by Leslie Cox; Thursday; August 29, 2022

Registration is now open for my Zoom workshop, Putting the Garden to Bed, on Thursday, September 22, 2022 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

SapsuckerUnfortunately, there is a wee glitch in the link from the Registration form to the Checkout page. When you click on the “Submit” button the page “Not Found” pops up. But a search box is offered. Click on the magnifying glass in the right corner of the box and you are directed to a page with a list of entries on my website.

Click on Putting the Garden to Bed and you are directed to the Checkout page. Click “Add to cart”, then click on “Checkout” in the righthand box and you are directed to the payment page where you can complete your registration.

Huge apologies for this inconvenience in navigating this workshop presentation registration. I have spent hours trying to find the missing link that will fix this glitch in order to have everything syncing smoothly. Sadly, to no avail. Yet. I have reached out for some technical assistance and am awaiting a reply.

In the meantime, I really appreciate your patience and perseverance in registering, and making a payment to attend my workshop on Putting the Garden to Bed.
