Re: strange gardening year

I found some millet in my blue and white bed - courtesy of my birdies no doubt!  Corn?  Love it!!
Donna - I'm sure w/ all the deluges you've had and the times your yard's
been under water, that given rise to a whole new crop of weeds. Wouldn't
surprise me a bit. All my weed (and some plant) newcomers are bird
delivered. Not sure it's ever going to rain again here. They say maybe
by the end of the week. Of course, they said that last week too.
