The Brooks Museum Farmer Mixer - we were there!

The MAMG table at the Farmer Mixer

Memphis Area Master Gardeners had a table at last Thursday night's Farmer Mixer at the Brooks Museum.  Tons of people attended, there was food, wine, and music!  Many thanks to the wonderful folks at the Brooks for letting us share the fun.

We helped people make Rosemary Wreath Doorhangers - so clever and simple - you can get the directions here.  A lot of the rosemary came from the plantings outside of the UT Agricultural Extension Service office at the Agricenter.  Here's a picture after I took the cuttings.  You can't even tell that anything was cut!  Rosemary is so easy and very versatile.  We'll have a post up later about it.  Note that the rosemary is blooming!

Be sure to check out the Farmers Market Film Festival this Saturday and the next at the Brooks.

We had lots of questions about rosemary!
