Re: mulch

Kitty: Sounds like your first job needs to be teaching Megan to get over
her fear of worms...maybe once she understands what cool creatures they
really are, she might learn to tolerate them. I had to do the same thing
with my Meghan...

No. Megan is afraid of worms and has zero interest in gardening.
Mike<br>seems to prefer houseplants. They just wanted the mulch to look
better, so<br>that's about how I left it. The daylilies will probably do
alright in the<br>clay, they can survive almost anything. I also planted
some Geranium<br>phaeum, because Mike liked it, but thats about it. Down
the road, Megan<br>wants to install a shade tree, so I will probably
help with that. Anybody<br>want to suggest a favorite shade tree for
