Yesterday, Michelle reached her goal of raising over $10,000.00 for the benefit of Childrens Hospital in Boston. That does not include the percentage match Cosco will make to the Hospital. After witnessing first hand how much time, effort and sacrifice Michelle and her whole family put in to making it such a tremendous success, I just wanted to add my sincere congratulations to her and her family. Many of you came by to buy a plant and make a donation to the Childrens Hospital and many of you frequent some of the nurseries and garden centers who generously donated plants. I wanted to thank you also.
Michelle has already started working on 2011 and if any one can think of ways to help, I'm sure she would appreciate it. I'll be bringing some of her heirloom tomatoes (from Trudi's seeds) to the Billerica swap and will ask that people "adopt" them - just save the seeds so they can be used for the 2011 sale!
Congratulations again, Michelle. Now breathe!
