Re: head count

Ron- You live in a breath-taking area of the US. Makes me a bit homesick, in fact. I lived in Maine before moving to California (now that was a major change!). I found several nurseries and a seed company (the name of which I can't recall right now) from Canada that specialized in short-season varieties of flower and veggies. The thing that always amazed me when I lived in Maine was how incredibly fast everything grew during summer! Those long hours of daylight were amazing growth stimulators! I recall being most enthralled with the Rugosa rose "trees" in Maine- some were huge- reaching up to the second story of some houses! And the soil where I lived (downeast Maine- Eastport) was the best of anywhere I have lived!

I have been lurking since AHS site also but have limited knowledge on gardening. Living in central Maine, gardening is a bit of a challenge part of the year. (We have a new snow of 18" on the ground & a bit cold - teens) hoping for a early planting time. I have learned a lot from many of you guys & gals Difficult to contribute a lot when I know so little but trying to learn. I have lots of land to grow on & am building beds from scratch trying to grow all the easy plants but trying to cultivate a few difficult ones. I spend time juggling my retirement with a lovely bride of 36 years & household chores & gardening when I have time.

Thanks for all you teach me with your postings.
