 Thanks !  That was fast...before the water/sugar mixture even boiled I had 
 I love these lists.

Carol, everyone has given you good advice on the hummer thing!  I found out 
that it is beneficial to the hummers to add a few drops of liquid vitamins 
that is available in pet stores for birds.  Also, if your feeders are not 
emptied frequently by the birds then you should do it, two days is about max 
on the amount of time to be allowed.

My mom has to fill her feeders twice a day.

While I am here I would like to ask the vegetable gardeners out there what is 
a good tomato to pot up for my grandmother's porch? She is ninety-one years 
old and does not get around too well but she is sharp as a tack, and she does 
love tomatoes and misses having a garden.

Also, has anyone had any experience with adding SAP to pots containing 
tomatoes to eliminate the need for so much watering?

Thanks so much to anyone who can help me here.
