RE: Since we are on id'ing and stuff....

Sorry about the rabbits.  I've been planting clovers in the grass area of
my yard that seems to keep them away from the gardens or at least helps.  I
do see rabbits throughout the day every day.

We have had flash floods this month with rain almost every day.  It is
raining now.  Great for getting seedlings started but my mowing efforts
will be major.  The squirrels planted nuts in every garden and pot.  I have
pulled more oak and black walnut seedlings than ever before.  Just when I
think I have gotten them all, I find more spouting up, thankful for the
cool rain.
