Image Food & the Gathering of Iowa/MidWest Gardeners
By merigold on April 5, 2011

What makes for a successful gathering of gardeners? Well for starters (and not necessarily in this order): good weather, good folk from near and far, good conversation, maybe a fun activity or two, some plants to be swapped....and oh, let's not forget the FOOD!

Why isn't my Blackberry Jam Cake in your gathering of recipes, Arlene?
Just give me one good reason.

Grumble #1 for nap.
Grumble #2 for TLC.

If you don't know Moby and Dave . . . well . . . you gotta love them. They are so much fun. I wish I could share that pic of you with the light on your head where you were ready to go pilfer out of someone elses garden.


DON'T give Moby where you live. Rolling on the floor laughing

That's right! I stole your Dimention, didn't I? It told me it wanted to come live with me, so what else could I do?

I'll try to behave, we wouldn't want to scare Sharon away. Smiling
