Ryderwood gardener expanding on his long-time hobby

The Circle of Friends Garden in Ryderwood is a busy place. It is the latest creation of Howard Lindsay, who specializes in strawberries and garlic. The latter of which took much of his time at Garlic Fest in Chehalis over the weekend.

Lindsay moved to Ryderwood in 1985 and gained an interest in gardening. He always had a small plot, but when he sold his home and moved in with his daughter, he developed his own project garden that includes two greenhouses.

Ryderwood News 08.27.14

It is always good to see so many friendly faces in town during the Garage Sales. I'm pretty sure more items went out of town than came in, which is a big part of the plan. Many thanks to the Social Club for stepping up to sell hot dogs over the weekend. There will be another one in the Spring - the last weekend in April.

About Ryderwood's available technology: Century Link provides the only landline telephone (all numbers begin with "295-") and Broadband Internet (6-10 Mbps maximum). For those who want Internet only, a landline number is assigned to all DSL Broadband connections. I think I get the biggest bang for my buck at: ~$20 for landline phone with no long distance, caller ID, etc. and ~$40 for the highest speed Internet.
