Re: my 2 cents about regulars and lurkers

It's true, I was on the old AHS list a long time before I said anything.
I'm not a professional gardener, it's just my personal obsession :-) And
since my sense of humor is a tad warped, I try to tone that down too.

But I did get back w/ Fran, just been so busy w/ watering right now (watered until 9:30 last night)
I have to get in a minute here and there as I can  between moving hoses.  107 predicted today w/ a red ozone alert.  Whee.
