I was afraid someone was going to tell me that (to test the ph).  That's
one of those things I lump into the "maintenance" category under "things
I hate".  I will try to force myself to do it, but don't be suprised if
I don't.

	Hi, Alice.  Don't feel too bad about ripping out your roses.
Just telll

grew.  Llama

in spring

extremely acidic
