Placed my order with Pinetree today for the seeds we must absolutely
plant this year, mostly common veggies we didn't already have seeds for
and a number of everlasting flowers for Miz Anne's art stuff.

Got a new catalog from Burpee's yesterday, it's an Heirloom seed
catalog. Very impressed although some of the seeds don't strike me as
heirloom. They did have the Louisiana Long Green eggplant and the Lemon
Drop chiles (peppers to those of us east of the Rockies) that we grew in
1998. Although I didn't get my seed from Burpee's I can recommend those
two unreservedly. We had two LL green eggplant plants and got enough
fruit to satisfy our hunger for eggplant for the season. Two Lemon Drop
pepper plants produced way more peppers than we could ever use fresh so
a lot were frozen, pickled, turned into hot sauce, etc. Think I would
only plant one bush next time. Anyway, if you didn't get Burpee's
Heirloom catalog it would be worth going to their web site and ordering
the catalog if just for a reference.

Weather is beautiful here, cool, bright sunshine, moderate winds.
Expecting some rain by this weekend and it is needed.

George, back to shampooing the carpets.
