Re: Getting rid of all TB's =^..^=

Hi Kath in OKC. . .
    Running an ad in the Sunday paper may help you get rid of a portion of
your TBs but be warned. . . having people come and dig themselves is a
potential invitation to disaster. You would need to show them *exactly* where
to put the fork in the ground (among other things) and how to get the clump up
and out. They will (accidentally or carelessly) put their feet down on other
iris. You can't supervise more than 1-2 people at a time and if they bring
children. . .that's yet another problem! I speak from experience. When I
farmed, I (one time) let folks come and pick green beans. . .They torn the
vines jerking the beans down, wandered (uninvited) through the gardens, (and
around the farm!!!) and the kids were into everything. . .climbing all over
the tractor and equipment. Granted, this is a worse case scenario but it *did*
    You might just forget the dream of sitting out in the garden and let 'em
come dig!!
