Don’t hide yourself in a water barrel!

The moment you seeders and hillers have been waiting for has arrived. Tonight we are going to start a limited harvest of the Norland Red potatoes! So if you broke your back out there with the gang, please come and share in the early harvest tonight! We want to keep this harvest under control because the other varieties are still putting on some size. Please only harvest on the set nights so we can make sure we maximize the yield of our hard work and only harvest plants that are ready!

On saturday the Home Depot is sending out a small army of volunteers to help us install our hoop houses. We will also be having a casual barbeque. If you have something you would like to make and share with the crowd that’s wonderful, if you don’t come out anyway, EOGG will be suppliying buns, sausages, and a vegetarian alternative. We may also see the national communities in bloom judges for a brief visit. 

Its a busy week and we need hands on site to help!

    Hi Everyone,<o:p></o:p> We just got back from <st1:city><st1:place>Roy</st1:place></st1:city>’s Raspberries and the berry picking is unbelieveable!  I have never seen the bushes so loaded with berries and the owner said it is the best year they have had since 1999.  Three of us picked six pails (approx.30 lbs) in roughly 3 hrs.  30 lbs at 3.60 a lb was $110.00.  <o:p></o:p> For anyone interested <st1:city><st1:place>Roy</st1:place></st1:city>’s Raspberries (780-962-3959 or http://www.roysraspberries.com) is located 6 km west of the city on Highway 16A.  The fastest route is to take the Whitemud Freeway to Highway 60 and then turn right(north) and proceed to the Highway 16A exit at the overpass.  It’s just a few minutes down the road.  <st1:city><st1:place>Roy</st1:place></st1:city>’s Raspberries is on the left (south) side of the highway just a few minutes from the overpass.  Their season is almost finished so if you are interested I wouldn’t leave it much longer.<o:p></o:p> Travis, thanks again for organizing us for the BBQ!  The food was delicious!  Jeanette, is there any chance we might get your recipe for the apple muffins?  They were amazing!<o:p></o:p> Cheers, Jeannie<o:p></o:p> From: Edmonton Organic Growers Guild [mailto:post=eoggs.posterous.com@posterous.com] On Behalf Of Edmonton Organic Growers Guild Sent: August 10, 2011 7:21 AM To: poole99@telus.net Subject: [eogg.org] Baby red potatoes tonight and on Saturday.
