June Mayor’s Corner

Hello all, welcome to June!

Warmer days and cooler nights are certainly welcome. As I sit in our backyard watching the dogs play I look at our little garden. While it is not a huge garden by any stretch of the imagination, it does fine by us.

Gardening is a wonderful thing. It is , in my opinion, the most basic step in self reliance that is fairly stable and static. It tests your patience, your willingness to learn a new skill, and also shows you the wonder of our world on a small scale.

In Oregon we have a wonderfully long growing season that allows us to try our hand at growing many different veggies. If you haven’t, I heartily urge you to give it a shot. It’s fun!

I suggest starting with carrots, cucumbers, celery and Tomatoes. These are probably the most common veggies to start with.

Let me know what your favorite veggies are to eat or grow. If you have gardening tips or tricks, please share. I would love to add those tips in future Mayors Corners.

And with that, I hope you have a great month and urge you to be a good neighbor and help out those less fortunate.

-Mayor Jerry
