I'm glad that you made it onto the list. Reticulatas are just finishing
here. The danfordiae must have given up the ghost -- I'll have to pick up
some more this fall. Very little rot this year. There are good increases
on just about everything but I haven't had time to get out the notebook and
document it all. First round of Cygon was done last week. And it looks
like DOTTED LINE made it through. It had died back last summer a few weeks
after it got planted.
And my Joe Pye Weed order arrived! Five fan divisions looking just
fabulous. They got planted immediately into one of the vegetable beds along
with the seedlings. I guess we won't be growing as many beans this year.
Ottawa, Canada (zone 4) -- eleven days til I get on a plane to Oklahoma!
