The Spade Brigade had a good turnout for the November 13th workday at the Merrick House Heritage Garden. Pictured from left to right: Many thanks to friend of the garden and neighbor, Maria Teofilo, Evelyn Budde, Victoria Cabeza, and Paula Biehler, for their help in some light weeding, trimming and planting a few new items in the garden beds (we now have lavender!). A genuine big thank you goes out to Evelyn Budde’s son Andrew for bringing chairs and snacks.
We also enjoyed some delicious shortbread cookies, demonstrating just one of many ways to use rosemary (recipes included on our resource page under links). I chose not to dip the cookies in the chocolate included in this recipe. - Paula
