As some of you know, I am a Master Gardener, here in Jackson County, Texas. This past year, I served as President of our Association, and it was my privilege to do so. Last December 15th, I handed the reins of power (chuckle, chuckle) off to my VP, Mary Nell. I did so gladly, because our association does need the enthusiastic new Master Gardeners to lead us, and keep us from becoming static and bored. All our new officers are new Master Gardeners, certified only a year ago, at most.
So, now,what to do? How do I fill my time? I had over 428 hours last year, what will I do now?
I am the Web Master for us, that is what! I started working on our website last year, and this year, that is all I am going to be responsible for. You can see it at www.jcmga.com
I am proud of it, and I am always happy to have suggestions of how I can improve it. We have a wonderful assortment of personalities in our Master Gardener group. They have been great about sharing pics with me, and alerting me to things they are doing.
Oh, yes, and I will be writing a monthly Master Gardener type column for the local newspaper.
My yard is pitiful. It will take lots of TLC to restore it to it's former magnificence. We will get there. It will just take some time.
