Monday seems to be my day to write the weekly report for Evergreen. Today is May 25th.

The main activities this past week is definitely seeding and planting the gardens. The weather has been so perfect - plant, rain and sunshine! Soon we will see the results of all the hard work.

The glad bulbs Phyllis Gompf planted last week are beginning to show. And her garden is coming right along too. The flowers around the front door and under the windows in the back are showing their lovely colors.  My Grow a Row jalapenos are looking great. It is a joy seeing seeds and gardens come alive.

On Saturday, Sherald Joynt was at her sister’s, Val Smith and Barry Stuart, for supper.

Mike Campbell is going to Winnipeg on Wednesday for another doctor’s appointment.

Eileen Price visited her son in Onanole.

Here are some things that happened on May 25 in years gone by:
