thanks, fall garden

the reunion grille was a nice venue for our silent auction
the heat this week affected our turnout some
however the goal we set for our silent auction fundraiser
for our organicgreen doctor team for the williamson county
walk to end alzheimers on september 28 2013
was exceeded last night

thanks to those who turned out despite the heat
it was nice to see some former patients

the quilt that special quilt that was made by my friend
dr bates was won by a new quilter who won it
after bidding against more experienced quilters

this memory quilt was our highest bid item
of the night

it was hard to see this one of a kind quilt leave my
possession knowing the work dr bates put into it
and knowing what this quilt means but i feel like it
is in good hands now

the small quilt piece got into a bidding war and the winner
is a team member whose mother died from alzheimers
this forget me not quilt piece will have a special meaning
im sure

the baseball that nolan ryan signed was won by a team member
whose daughter wanted it
thanks to dc and to the executive from the round rock express
who donated it

the tablet was won by a fellow employee who she hopes she
wont have to share its use too much with her husband

then the second highest bid item was won by a fellow alzheimers
committee person who with her husband and two daughters
are looking forward to the instillation of their fall garden

the dkr the royal scrapbook was a last minute add on
and was a large fundraising item also

thanks again to all who participated
which means you have helped us make that small step
towards finding a cure and or treatment for this terrible disease
alzheimers disease


(this is my wife shes school garden after its been prepped
for the fall planting)

its about time to plant it here in central texas
but dont do it yet its too dang hot
unless you are a real experienced gardener
if you do you will fail

you should prep your garden though
rake it and remove any debris weeds and old plantings
apply a 3 inch layer of good organic compost over
the garden
then scattered a good organic fertilizer
you can gently rake this into the top layer of soil
lightly cover it with a good mulch like straw or pine straw
or even leaves to hold in moisture

if you let it sit for a few weeks
it sort of cures and makes for a better fall garden
you know like when you cook soup
and it tastes better the next day when all the stuff
sits together to increase the flavor

same here with the garden

good luck

the organicgreen doctor

  1. You and your team did a great job at Reunion Grill last night. The set up was beautiful, and you and your wife she are such gracious hosts. No wonder you met your goal. Next year will be even better.
