Garden Expo Feb. 9-11
So, has winter got you down? Are you suffering from Cabin Fever?
Here is an answer to what’s making you depressed. It’s time to think about gardening. Mark February 9-11 on your calendar and attend Wisconsin Public Television’s Garden Expo at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.
As a promoter of the show wrote, “Now in its 25th year, this three-day event celebrates the latest trends in gardening, landscaping and edibles, and attracts more than 20,000 people from across the Midwest. Join other gardening enthusiasts to share ideas, gain inspiration and create something new. All proceeds support Wisconsin Public Television.”
Oh, lest I forget. I will be speaking there once more, along with my daughter, Susan Apps-Bodilly. To quote the program:
Old Farm Country Cookbook
Saturday, February 10, 2:15 p.m. Room Mendota 1-2
Jerry Apps and Susan Apps-Bodilly
Representing the Wisconsin Historical Society Press
Listen to rural storyteller Jerry Apps tell stories of farm life during the 1930s-1950s. Jerry talks about how farm families depended on their gardens for food. Jerry's daughter, Susan, will discuss recipes from the old, white, wooden recipe box that her grandmother followed when there was no electricity or indoor plumbing and all the cooking and baking was done using a wood-burning cook stove.
Also: Sunday at 1 p.m. in Room Mendota 4.
I hope to see you there.
