Re: today..../MG state convention

We had our State Master Gardener Convention here this weekend. I think it went very well. We had David Salman from High Country Gardens as a speaker. I was in charge of the microphones so I got to talk to him a lot. He is such a knowledgeable man. We also had a landscape architect from OKC, John Fluitt, the son of the owners of Horn Canna farm, Dustin Snow and 2 speakers from OSU on Potential Exotic Pests, Their ID & Control. We ended with a talk and tour of Sunshine Gardens where the owner Steve Bieberich explained how he grows trees in an air pruning box. We were suppose to have a meteorologist from OKC but we have had potential tornadoes all weekend so at the last minute he had to cancel. It all worked out well... David just took a little longer with his slides.
On Thursday night we had an open invitation to the Master Gardeners from all over the state to stop by the Blair Cabin for ice cream and cookies. We have been working on a heirloom garden there for several years but this year we had a mural painted behind a log cabin and now we are waiting on everything to grow in to give a 3D effect. We seeded in 5 different kinds of native grasses and buckwheat, put in a dry creek bed and some bigger cedars to try to make it hard to tell where the painting ends.
Now back to working in my garden again. David gave me several new wants for my lot, where I don't water at all.
I now need to work on my talk for the class I am teaching on Ornamental grasses. I have put it off until this was over.
(where we are in a tornado warning again tonight)

Well, I worked in A/C that was often too cold. On my lunch I went to the
gardens; we had a "workday" - getting ready for our first garden walk and
second plant sale next week. It was'nt quite as bad today as the rest of
the week (one case of heat stroke yesterday) but everyone was cautioned to
take breaks and drink fluids. Stormed a couple of times this afternoon.
When it is hot and muggy like this, there isn't much point in trying to
garden between say Noon and 4pm. Just get up early or stay at it late. No
spider bites here, but several mosquito bites yesterday. I worked back and
forth between home & CES til 2, took a nap, and then worked at CES 4-8.

I have no idea how you folks deal with this heat! It is no where the same
here in zone 5 than in lets say-- Pam's, Theresa, or Jims gardens.

Ended up taking more breaks for water than working! Managed to fall into a
window well and get bite by a spider... Geesh... gardening was just not
meant for me today!

Did get some things weeded, but decided against moving plants in this

What did everyone else do?
