I finished printing up the copies of the spring newsletter for our computer-less members & mailed them out yesterday. If anyone hasn't gotten their copy (emailed out a week ago) of the newsletter, please email me & I'll send it out ASAP.
If you haven't paid your 2017 dues, then this will be the last newsletter you receive. Please contact us at to renew/join for 2017. We hope you'll join us for another great gardening season.

All the best,
Phil Hunt

I talked to John Butler and I will be sending him 30+ grams of seeds tomorrow (that's hundreds of seeds), so if anybody in Ontario wants any it will be best to contact him.

The Dutch growers select the largest 20+ seeds from their package (they all get an identical package of seeds) and plant each in a separate pot and keep them inside until they are ready to plant out in May. I think they start in April. The best seedlings get planted out and the rest are discarded of. The plants need a minimum of 3x3 ft, and what I have seen from the 171 lber they grew, the plant seemed to reach about 6x6 ft.

For the rest the club is pretty secretive. I can't join it because it is only open to growers from a small part of one of the Dutch provinces and I live on the other side of the country. I know they have special soil there and will try to find out what it is.
