Hi, Cathy.  I don't use Facebook.  I know that most of this group  do, but
I just don't.  I miss hearing from folks, though, so I'm glad someone  still
uses GardenChat.
I did hear from Zem this week, and this is what I told her:
This has been a crazy season.  I just wound up a Horticulture School -  
caused me more
trouble than any I have put on in the past 20 years or so.  
The weather has been crazy.  One hot day a couple of weeks ago, and  cool 
and cloudy
ever since.  One benefit, however.  I have always carefully  chosen my 
daffodils, or which
I have planted many over the past 42 years in this house, to give me the  
longest possible
season of bloom - early, mid-season and late - but for the past several  
years they have
all bloomed at the same time.  This would make a spectacular show for  
about ten days,
and then would be all over.  This year it looks as if it is really  
working.  I have already
had daffs since before Easter and some are just now beginning to put up  
I have planted peas,  but they are just coming up.  I have cherry  tomatoes 
indoors - I hang them in large pots under the eaves of the garage where  
they get
good sun.  Things have been so hectic here that I haven't done much  else.  
And the
first thing I need to do is start to spray for deer - they are already  
eating everything
that shows.  I found a two-pronged antler in the yard the other  day.
It has been so cool and cloudy most of this spring that I feel as if it  
hasn't come yet.
At least we haven't had snow - my son in Colorado has had a foot on his  
deck twice
in the past two weeks.

Don't  know how many of you are on facebook, but I have deleted my  
account.  Didn't use or enjoy using it, and when the spouse sent out  
something  without checking who was logged in, it was the last straw.  
Hope  everyone's gardening is in full gear. Planted lettuce, spinach  
and  snow pea seeds, but germination is slow. My Queen Sophia marigold   
seedlings are doing well under grow lights, but my purple hyacinth   
vines were attacked by my plant eating feline. Hope they survive.  Too  
wet even to weed, but at least the drought has broken.
