Mrs. Greenthumbs Day

By all accounts, Mrs. Greenthumbs Day was a great success. Adam Clayton has a report about it in today's Register-Star: "Mrs. Greenthumbs Tour returns to Hudson."

Here's a little bit of Hudson history Gossips heard while visiting the gardens on Sunday. Back in the late 1980s, when Mrs. Greenthumbs was first getting her garden at 611 Union Street going, the code enforcement officer at the time, obviously believing that the only appropriate thing to grow in a yard was grass, cited Mrs. Greenthumbs for "excessive vegetation." She had to take him through the garden and tell him the names of all the plants to prove that this was a garden and not a yard run amok with weeds.
