President Peter Lattey message to Rotarians and friends:

The pumpkins are ripe and the weather is getting cooler (well maybe).  At this time of year, in most of the country people are getting their snow blower tuned up and cleaning up their snow shovels.  BUT, in southern California, we get ready for our fall vegetable planting. We can plant lettuce, kale, brussel sprouts, cool weather tomatoes, and carrots at this time of year for harvest throughout our "winter".  

(And yes we will be planting broccoli.  One of the unique things about broccoli is that when you cut the main head off, it continues to grow secondary heads down the stalk.  This is different from caulliflower which only grows one head.  Bet you didn't know that did you?)

So on Saturday, November 10 at 9:00 AM we will go over to Mama Hill's and pull old plants and weeds, dig, rake, mulch, fertilize, and plant.  Some of her students will be there to help and to learn how to pull old plants, dig, rake, mulch, fertilize, and plant.  So plan on packing up your kids and plan to be there.

This will also give you a chance to admire the storage shed we built for her with several other Rotary Clubs in District 5280.
