Dear Hosta Brethren:
It's great to see some life in the old robins again. The Bill and Chick Show
(and all the supporting characters) is always a treat too. Their proximity
to Washington D.C. makes them expert at such exchanges. Chick and Bill
hand puppets at the national convention this year would be a splendid fund
raiser. That business about hosta seeds on Ebay was a nice Caveat Emptor
The thread tracing hosta addiction was certainly a valuable scholarly
addition to the nature of addiction itself. For some of you creative souls,
I bet this question could generate a lot more wonderful speculation which
might provide some beneficial laughter to the Q and A Column.Consider this
an invitation, but if you e-mail them, keep them private. There ought to be
some surprise answers in THJ which we all might enjoy. Please,consider
trying out your fanciful answers to our shared addiction. I myself think
that pheromones enter into the picture, I'll bet Chick could explore that
Thank you very much for all of the questions, as well as the smattering of
answers which may point to some new possibilities. The Q and A Column, in
respect to answers, will have both factual answers and some that are no
doubt "opinion" answers. Both are valuable....and inevitable.
Bobbi D. and I will sort through this group of questions, (we have two
other major sources for questions too) and then share them with those who
are willing to take their experience and knowledge in building a better
vole trap for all of us.
At the risk of repeating myself (for the hundredth time) we are always
looking for new people who are willing to try a paragraph or two for
THJ...without making the commitment of a scholarly treatise on nematodes...
Keeping that in mind...how about sending us your most heartfelt question
with your best heartfelt answer to that same question. Inquiring readers of
THJ want to know. After all, you don't know what you don't know, until you
know it. And even then it could be open to debate.:-). Send all such
questions and answers to Bobbi and me privately. Keep the mystery!
We hope to have such a drive for questions and answers on the robins once a
year.....or possibly twice as we now have 3 Hosta Journals a year. The
ongoing discussions on the robins are an invaluable resource too. Ignorance
should be our greatest asset (I know it's mine), at least for as long as
we can find people who will share their knowledge and experience (and
Here in Vermont with 24" of powdery snow and a hundred cars from
Connecticut, off the road, as their Velcro-clad ski occupants jump up and
down frantically dialing their cell phones as they try and find local
people who will tow their Mercedes out of the ditches. HEH HEH HEH HEH.
