Souper Bowl Sunday:  You may not care who wins the Super Bowl on February 3rd, but you can help the Pantry for Adair County (PAC) win at feeding our needy neighbors.

Children’s Items Needed:  With the growing number of children and families now coming to Trinity, we have need of a high chair or two and booster seats. If you have any of these items or know someone who does, and can donate them to Trinity, please speak to Amy or e-mail her at amy.fallon08@gmail.com.

Bible Study on the Book of Psalms – on Tuesday nights from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm beginning on January 29 and running until February 26. All are welcome, come when you can, bring a friend!

Diocesan Statement on Gun Storage: This past spring, the Bishop and the Diocesan Council approved this statement on safe gun storage: “The Council of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri implores gun owners to lock and secure weapons against use by children or those suffering from agonizing despair. Please ensure that all guns in your home are locked and secured against use by children or those suffering agonizing despair.”

Seeds! Seeds! Free Seeds!  I went a tad bit overboard in my seed-buying this year, and I have many slightly older seeds—still quite viable—available for free.  Plant a little more thickly that usual—especially the cucurbits.  On Sunday 3 February, I’ll bring them with some small baggies for folks to take some home for planting.

Bush Beans—green, yellow, purple mix;

Cole—mixed multicolor Asian Greens (use ‘em small for salads and stir-fries);

Cucurbit—Zucchini (green, gold, stripey); Summer Squash (yellow and a few pattypan); Cucumbers (pickler/small fresh, and smaller amount of slicer and striped “Armenian”); Winter Squash (small acorn, butternut, kabocha (like a medium-sized orange hubbard);

Lettuce—mixed colors and varieties.

Beets—Boro, Lutz, Bull’s Blood (good red leaves for salad as well); a few Touchstone Gold.

Radish—D’Avignon (French Breakfast); German Giant (Parat); KN-Bravo (purple Korean daikon); Alpine (white Korean daikon).
