Re: OT-BIO: Ken and Christie Pierson


I am not sure this is the correct way to answer but here goes.Regarding
climate zones, I decided to get some more info on this . Sunset magazine
says we are in zone 3. USDA says zone 6-7, all garden related mailings say
we are zone 9!!! Suffice it to say our normal mid-winter temperature is
about 38 degrees occaisonally dropping to 20 degrees.
WE are very interested in learning about some  earlier blooming, rebloomers
. Total recall is a summer rebloomer for us and we would like to know of
some more.
Regarding the wild turkeys, NO we can't eat something that waddles up the
stairs and walks through the arbor!!
