Re: hosta-open DIGEST V1 #10

Hello to all,

I purchased small plastic Zip bags from The
United States Plastic Company. [listed as,
"Dispensor Bags' on their web site]

One must buy 1000 baggies - around $7.00,
[100 in a packet], but then one will have a life-
time (?) supply.

Now that I have an ample supply I shall give some
as Christmas presents to my gardening friends,
to my Geologist son (for his itsty-bitsy rocks),
and to all the button collectors I know.

Happy Hostas to all,
