The local forsythia in Springfield are sending forth
 its yellow glory, and it is just before Christmas which
is good as a unexpected Christmas present..,,,,..bad as it
 is a  month or more earlier than normal.  Keep an eye
open for other "early" happenings.

Fruit trees have finally lost their leaves.  Let the pruning
begin.  If you have only a few trees to prune, wait until
February.  OSU Extension-  Lane County has two pruning
classes coming up;  one in Florence, Jan. 8, Thursday; 
meet at the Florence Event Center at 9:00am and Jan. 10 at
10am at Thistledown farm.  Go to the OSU Extension - Lane
 County - Home Gardening web site to get information and
to register.  There is a list of other pruning classes. 

Linn and Benton counties have two pruning classes - Jan. 22
at Lewis Brown farm and Feb. 17 at Grandpa's farm, Crabtree. 
Go to the Linn or Benton county web site to register and get
more information.
