I went out to the non-ADA, non-ILP greenhouse yesterday morning and was greeted by 834 brand new friends and neighbors. Ladies and gentlemen Veterans, I’d like to introduce you to the September class of 2016 Silver Queen. I spotted about 3 no-shows but the majority are above ground and will be ready to hit the dirt soon. I like to spoil them in the g-house and make them think they’re in South Carolina. This year’s crop is planted in memory of a tough Marine named Paul Burch who passed far too soon in January of this year. He and his lovely wife Leigh gave me the first batch of Silver Queen back in 2013. We’ve been planting it ever since.
The balance of what we cannot plant will be sold by Sunnycrest Nursury and the profits donated to Veterans’ causes locally. As it should be.
