Dear HCU members:

Hello Herbies! Thank you to everyone for the hard work and effort put into Herb Celebration Day. We outdid ourselves again this year with our successful fundraising results. Well done, HCU! You'll hear all about the details at this month's meeting. 

There is a change in our meeting program for this month. Instead of Brazilian Cuisine, we'll meet the Dripping Springs Garlic Queens who will tell us everything we need to know about growing and using garlic. 

For gardening, this month is your last chance to plant wildflowers. Also, our average first frost happens around November 15 so get ready to protect newly planted plants, tender vegetables and other tender plants. With temperatures dropping, remember to make plans for your basil—dry, freeze, or make pesto. It is still going strong now but will go down when temperatures reach 40 degrees.

See you at the meeting!
