Re: mulch

Kitty: Too bad...guess it's just the gardener in me that wants to
believe everybody would love gardening if they'd just give it a chance!
I guess if the reverse is true, then I'm doing my part to create new
gardeners...I feel very fortunate that all my kids like to help in the
garden. They all have their own plants out in my big garden. :-)

Melody,<br>First, let me complement you on spelling it right. My sister
thought the h<br>would cause too much trouble for the child. Heck - the
last name is<br>Stahlhut!. Geographically a bad match, but Meghan would
have worked just<br>fine.<br><br>No, this is a very stubborn young woman
who is very busy and has zero<br>interest in it. And I pretty much
understand. MY sister and I came from a<br>family with not so much as a
houseplant. My sister has no interest in<br>gardening other than to put
a few impatiens in a planter - she thinks I'm<br>looney. So 3rd
generation Megan never really stood much of a
chance.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original Message ----- <br>From:

over<br>> her fear of worms...maybe once she understands what cool
creatures they<br>> really are, she might learn to tolerate them. I had

Mike<br>seems to prefer houseplants. They just wanted the mulch to
look<br>> better, so<br>that's about how I left it. The daylilies will
probably do<br>> alright in the<br>clay, they can survive almost
anything. I also planted<br>> some Geranium<br>phaeum, because Mike
liked it, but thats about it. Down<br>> the road, Megan<br>wants to
install a shade tree, so I will probably<br>> help with that.
Anybody<br>want to suggest a favorite shade tree for<br>> Zone
