Garden Great in Zone 8!

Happy New Year! Recycle Your Grease!

on January 9, 2014

Happy new year, y’all!

To my dear sweet loyal readers who keep asking me when I’m going to start writing again: I solemnly resolve to do a better job of blogging this year.   2013 was a great year for gardening, and I spent so much time playing in the dirt that I neglected to tell you about it.  There was so much to do!  Tomatoes and beans and okra and cucumbers and eggplant and peppers and zinnias and dahlias and coleus, oh my!  I even started learning how to put up my vegetables using the boiling water bath method.  And I promise to tell you all about my adventures this year.

My main purpose for writing today is to let you know about a wonderful event in Columbus, Georgia this weekend.   Get 2014 off to a great start by participating in the Grease & Pharmaceutical Recycling Event!  The event is sponsored by Columbus Water Works, Keep Columbus Beautiful Commission, and the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Department.

What: Bring your old cooking grease/oil (in any household container) and unused or expired medications (prescription or over-the-counter).
Where:  Either Columbus K-Mart (Macon Road or Airport Thruway)
When:  Saturday, January 11, 2014 from 10 am to 2 pm
For more information, contact Gwen Russell at 706-649-3454.
