Master Gardener Lectures, Fall 2013

Each week, I will (try to remember to) upload the current Master Gardener class lecture to this site.  The lectures will be in PDF format, set up so that each slide has its own page, with my lecture notes below the photo.  Please do not print out the lectures!  You'll be going through an entire forest worth of paper!
