These lovely ladies came by to promote this wonderful event. – – Morgan McCarty Golf Classic Sept. 29th.

The interesting Plant of the Day is the Marsh Mallow – Althaea officinalis 

The Marsh Mallow plant is one of my favorites! The practice of cooking the plant juice/sap to make marshmallow creme dates back to ancient Egypt! WOW! Also a great aquatic plant that can grow in your Water Garden.

– We also had a caller asking about Pears and how to ripen them and how to make Pear Preserves. Here’s a link to my grandmas recipe-
