Well, who isn't?  I've got the planting jones... I too have been holding
myself back but am not going to make it much longer.  Last weekend I built
a light tower that is huge.  It's big enough to put in16 flats.  George,
I'm going to start a few of all the chili seeds you sent me.  I also have
Dowdeswell Delphinium seeds coming.

You have a nice weekend too!
