Re: Re: Plant disaster/ups versus usps

I've been lucky. My PO is great and everything sits in a nice air
conditioned PO until I can pick it up. And the UPS lady usually sets my
packages just behind the gate to the back yard in the shade and not
noticeable from the street.

Unless they're small then she hides them behind one of the pots on the porch.  She must be a gardener her own self.
