I was interested in your saying that most of your crosses were wide.
I'm wondering how you measure "wide." Different colors altogether?
Or patterns? This is my first year of crossing, and I've made many
crosses within the same general color, as well as some wider --
mostly pinks with blues in my pursuit of the pink-with-blue-beard.
So I'd have some to compare germination-wise.
As sisters-in-growing-zone, I'd especially value your experience with
Whidbey Island, WA, zone 8

you wish you were in zone 7. Reason being and I am in zone 7. Is
this a great place to start TB seed. Where can seed be got. Sure
