> Hi everyone.
> Today, I got 4 more beds planted... two of which were planted in the
> rain, while my dad sat in the garage while I yelled out the names of
> what I was planting, and which row it was in. (We worked from left to
> right.) Of all the ones that were sent to me this summer, about 10 have
> lost their nametags (or the ink wore off) or the leaves the names were
> on dried up and fell off. So... I'm going to have to think of a way to
> ensure label readability after 2 soaks in clorox-water. (yes...2. One
> of my sources for rhizomes sent me some bad plants.) Oh...and i found
> seed pods on a rosebush. Does anyone know what to do with these?
> Oh...and one more thing. While I was planting in what used to be my
> only garden in the front (the rest were mom& dads) I found... yes.. A
> SEEDLING!!!!!!!!!! It is sooo tiny. 3 tiny leaves, and the rhizome is
> still semi-indistinguishable from the whitish part of the leaves. It is
> round, though, and it had one big root. So next year, I think we'll see
> my first seedling, courtesy of Mr. Bee.
> That made it worth all my crosses *not* taking this year.
