Hi, Anna,

I'm interested, and I'll send a more specific response
soon. I spent all day toiling at a planting day for a
new garden (ah, life in the sunny south, where you can
grow fall veggies...), so I'm hitting the tic.

I do have a couple of quick questions, if you don't
mind. The CGR is produced once a year? When,
traditionally? Does each issue traditionally have a
distinct theme or focus? About how much has ACGA been
spending on the publication (I know, being the classic
volunteer low-budget group, we want to spend as little
as possible...)? And is it something where one person
could do editing and design on a computer using
InDesign, Quark or even Pagemaker (given good copy,
art and pics from contributors)? Who has been doing
it, and what is their view?

Thanks, man, I'm bushed. Everything btw went great,
the mayor put in pansies and cabbages, and liked it so
much he joined the garden on the spot. Only problem
was not being able to find decent Brussels sprouts
seedlings anywhere. Collards we got, tho, several
