  1. Informative and concise post! Excellent job.

  2. Awesome line-up of articles as usual! Just wanted to give you a heads up that a) your Sun Gold cherry tomato seeds (a few of them, anyway) were winter-sowed 2 weeks ago - we'll see how they fare compared to the ones I'll start indoors...and b) I nominated you for a blogging award that's been circulating...I'm just a fan of your site and hope to turn some other folks on to it. Check out my latest post if you want to know more about it.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
