General Discussion / Bumper Sticker Slogan
« Last post by cowpie on April 05, 2015, 10:38:22 AM »
After searching a long time I finally found a reasonable price for GVGO bumper stickers. Now we need a slogan for this. Any ideas?

Here's a few...

GVGO World's toughest Horticultural Society
GVGO Yes, they're real... and they're spectacular!
GVGO Our members are growing.
GVGO The B.S. stops when the tail gate drops!

General Discussion / 2015 "Other" Veggie Rules for Beets
« Last post by cowpie on April 03, 2015, 03:08:57 PM »
GVGO Featured ?Other? Vegetable of the Year for 2015-Beets

To make this easier for the grower and the judging of our contest we are going to split this contest up in to two categories. ?True? table beets or ?Rubra? beets and ?Non- Rubra? beets. To make this even simpler, we?re going to classify a table beet as any red/purple beet and all other varieties that are white, grey, yellow, pink or white with pink rings inside as non-table beets. I know this isn?t 100% correct as some of these other varieties are indeed for human consumption but we have to keep this easy for judges not 100% familiar with beet rulings. Hopefully, we will have a few varieties available at the club seminar in April.
As you may know, the 2014 contest was ?Rutabagas? or ?Swedes?. This was amazingly widely grown by the club and a new national record was set and we managed to get a few in the top 10 ever grown. Great results by any metric! Let?s do the same this year and smash a few records!
Prize money will be set at the 2015 Spring seminar as decided by the membership.

Ontario growers going to the GVGO seminar. We still have 40L of Neptune's Harvest seaweed available at $6 per litre. It will be divided up into 10L pails & available at the seminar only. If you wish to order some, please email me ASAP at . This will be the last of the seaweed that the club will be ordering in, so don't delay. Any leftover seaweed will be offered to the growers who have already asked for extra. We look forward to seeing you all at the seminar. All the best.

Last call for orders if you want them brought to the Spring Seminar. I will take orders up to this Sat/Sun April 4/5. After that I can't guarantee I can get it packaged up for the seminar as I'm swamped at work. I will have stuff available all year for shipping or pick up for anyone that needs more. Thanks

Thanks Peter for the feedback. OTT represents a shift away from the news format in the Growers Vine to a more informative magazine based style. It has pertenent growing related articles that directly related to giant vegetables. I want to thank All of our contributors and certainly the leadership of the gvgo and Phil Joynson for allowing me the freedom to make this happen.

We are working on the E connection we have contacted a supplier.

OTT I hope inspires gvgo folks to strive for better options in the patch.
There has been many delays in getting the first edition out but it has been worth the effort
Growers will be receiving OTT through out the day as it is difficult to distribute from my email acct.
As of this morning we are at about 75% distributed.
