RE: Gene's greenhouse / butterflies

Gene, my Uncle Albert in Loogootee always had papaws, so hang in there.
Definitely try them again!  Uncle Albert's soil wouldn't have been that much
different than yours and the climate would have been very similar.  He had
both the open fields and left some land as forested areas, too.

Ah Ha! Great minds do think alike.
    Cathy we have 3 spice bush that are reaching maturity now on the western

side of the garden. Also have two species of pipe vine and our butterflies 
seem to prefer the foreign species.... We did not have good luck 
establishing a couple of papaws, but will try again this spring. You will 
get the butterflies... sometimes they are late, or not a lot, but you will 
get to see them. Don't forge the planting of dill and fennel.
