Re: Wierd Weather

Thanks Marge - yes - left the luffas at work to bask under the lights
some more. Keeping my Emerald gem melon seedlings in the bathroom until
the cool snap goes away too. The peppers seem happy in their new home,
will keep them well watered and watch them. And weird is right. Seems
like the weather has been crazy everywhere this year. Off to dig some
more cannas for my friend in Alabama before the rain starts again -
about to drive me nuts w/ this rain now. Probably how you felt about the
snow, am I right??
