The rest of us welcome you and hope you can make it to this profoundly casual affair.See More

Thanks for you Steve and Geny for the welcoming email. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your visits to Ireland (we adore the place too!!) and you definitely know your geography too... living in west Clare is great, and glad to hear that you guys did some exploring of the area too. I am sure our paths will cross in the future, we are trying to get out and about in Charlotte (and further afield). Read about the evening/weekend restaurant run by ?Helen Schwab in Rock Hill... have you two been there? Any thoughts? Eating family style, and sharing tables and the price of 22dollars all sounds very, very appealing.
Good weekend to you, a meeting you soon I am sure,
Tried to recall.... when I noticed my error. But my intentions were good ~ Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this Friday's event. I'll keep my eye open for the next SF gathering.
Looking fwd to meeting you as well -
Thanks Steve! The garden is our life right now. Harvesting and recording yields to incorporate changes next year that will allow us to grow more on the same space. We've battled June bugs and blight this year, which has been really humbling and made us even more appreciative of our local farmers who work so hard to put out quality products while growing responsibly.
Thinking of coming to the potluck tomorrow; would love to hear what people are up to in the local food community this summer.
It was nice to see you at the market this weekend. The school garden is going to be at Sterling Elem. by the corner of 485 and South bulv. I hope to have a final garden plan and budget finished by the middle of next week. I am working on getting money from title one but im not sure how much I will get due to budget cuts. We are going to visit my sister so I wont be at the market this weekend but if you need to get in touch with me you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your help. Ben
I wanted to thank you for your gracious hospitality, especially under my misunderstanding of the nature of the event...I saw the words "Harvest, Potluck, and Farm" and saw outdoor picnic tables, pumpkin pies and chicken-chasing, ha!.
Now I know...these events are well appointed, typically adult, and lingering is part of the pleasure. Got it! I hope to see you all again at the next event.
Again, thank you for your hospitality, norma and co.
