It’s been a wonderfully productive few weeks. As was last reported by Lucy Hardcastle, the January 18th Board meeting was a packed house, with a lot of passion.

Back when we were ONLY considering drought-tolerant landscaping to use less water in our gardens, we found many plants with high oil content that set in deep tap roots so required less watering. Some of those plants also tend to burst into flames because of the high oil content. What’s a gardener to do?

I’ve got a great idea for you. Kick off summertime in Forestville by coming to the4th of July Farmer’s Market. Think pig roast, beer and wine, yummy food and bands! Joy Ride plays from 12-3, then Dog Gone Honey’s from 3-7 pm. Bring enough money to buy the usual fresh produce, gourmet olive oils, breads, crafts and treats.

It’s a perfect start to Forestville’s party- down weekend, the famous Youth Park BBQ June 2nd and 3rd. You can get those pancakes at the Methodist Church starting at 8 am on Saturday. Right outside their front door you’ll see folks preparing for our own sweet little hometown PARADE, which starts at 10.

Get on your track shoes, there is a lot going on in May and early June in our little town. All of it sounds pretty cool. There are some things you don’t want to miss.

I don’t know about you, but I rarely gave Trenton Road much thought. I love the section that parallels River Road. I sometimes take it coming home from Santa Rosa when I want to get a sense of being on a sweet country road in the middle of the rich, luscious countryside we live in. And of course, when River Road is backed up it’s fun to know the local way around a traffic jam.

Have you done one of those DNA tests yet? Any surprises? I was sort of hoping I’d have something interesting show up in mine. But science tells me I’m still mostly Irish.
