Hi Gang: Our veggies may be behind Chuck's "banana-belt" garden, but they're growing as fast as they can! Chuck visited Tuesday to bolster our spirits, and he didn't mention once how much higher his peas have grown! This week Allison's grandson Tristan joined our team, and put his youthful energy and enthusiasm into hilling the potatoes and leeks, and weeding as well - thanks, Tristan. We look forward to you joining us again. Rae showered us with goodies - she does treat us well - and tried her best not to fit into the photo. Faithful June added again to
our compost, and we wonder each week how it turns to soil so quickly. We all weeded, and some of us thinned beets, and picked rhubarb, spring greens and radishes. Today Sue transplanted cabbages and kohlrabi to the last remaining free spots, and potted some up in hopes of them being adopted out - these seeds surprised us by all germinating so well.Carrying on being inspired by Jo-Lynn to dig in the dirt - what a blessing she is to us all - Sue

Trudy dropped off her photo's from the weekend, which I'm sure you will find as enjoyable as I do.

But not shy! A wonderful weekend of sharing and learning took place May 28 to 30th at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Retreat Centre in Cache Creek. Fourteen women from St. Paul's parish spent their time listening to Ron Rolheiser on video, discussing the Two Halves of Spiritual Life. Small break out groups shared their thoughts on the information presented. Introductions included some personal information on each of the women present, including our leader Sarah Donnelly. The food was tasty and appealing; Denise's popcorn took us through the movie "Blind Side"; rooms were clean and equipped with full bathrooms and no one had to share their room.
