    Until this year I shared Dennis's opinion of BUTTER & SUGAR,  but this year
it was not a "sleeper" in my garden.  Neither was FOREFOLD WHITE, HARPSWELL HAZE
or several other Currier McEwen introductions.

     Hate to say it, but I've had better success with non-McEwen introductions
in my area (zone 8A) in the past - until this year.  All of his stuff really
took off and bloomed well this year.  Don't want to generalize without
supporting facts, but I'm kinda wondering if it could be the unusually cold
weather that we experienced this winter that triggered good bloom in McEwen
introductions.  I've also noticed that Currier's introductions do not take the
heat very well.   Can anybody else support this "generalization"?

Bill Smoot - finally home and building character!  I keep telling myself that
      weeds builds character.  So, I'm "building character" like crazy.
