Re: weekend gardening

Sounds like you've been busy.  I have more to do in the yard, but, although
I have good drainage, every place I walk is so soft, I have to be careful.
And the mosquitoes are terrible.  I'm going to try to get out early romorrow
am and see if I can tackle a few things.  For now, since it's about to rain,
I am working out the details of our MG Bulb Sale inside.
