Re: Chemical shelf life now and runner plants and weather

Hi Donna,
Just got about 2/10" of rain this morning (4-29) and it is now clouding up
again, hopefully a little more.
The weather has been wonderful, managed to plant most of the backlog of
plants, both purchased and grown from seed.  I think that moisture is
heading your way; just keep your fingers crossed.  Rich in Z-5
