How Green Are You?

Expert Gardener – I am passionate about gardening. It’s my favorite hobby and it’s how I spend much of my free time. Although I’m confident in my gardening skills, I’m always interested in learning more about plants, gardening techniques and products that will inspire me.

Intermediate Gardener – Gardening is one of my hobbies and I often wish I could spend more time in my garden. I like to try new plants and techniques every growing season. I have the basics down but could use more detailed ideas and information that will help me to be an even better gardener.

Beginner – I’m relatively new to gardening and I’m making the effort to spend more time in my garden. I could use basic information and ideas on how to make my garden better, as well as simple solutions for the challenges I face.

Dabbler – I’m interested in gardening but wouldn’t say, “I’m a gardener.” I buy annual flowers in the spring and spend a few hours a week making sure the yard looks good. I’d like to have a more extensive garden, but it’s intimidating and time consuming.

In Our Prayers

It is with regret I have been informed of the recent passing of the mother of Bernard Myers.  I do not have any funeral arrangements as yet. I will forward them when and if received. Please keep Bernard and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this time of mourning. Susan Christian – Secretary, NYCGBOA

Cream-style soups are a favorite for warm, soothing meals on cold winter nights. The addition of a cup or two of cooked beans can stretch canned or homemade soup into a complete, protein-rich meal in just minutes. Stir a can of drained rinsed white beans into tomato soup. Or try pinto beans added to cream of celery soup.
