Dear list (and especially Marianne),
  Thanks, Marianne, for the suggestions on where to find the alpine 
strawberries.  I've ordered several packets of Alexandria but will look 
at the Richter's website to see if they offer any of the other 
varieties.  Yummmm!

  I just received several packets of Johhny Jump Up seeds from Pinetree.  
I seem to remember reading in a book that putting the seeds in the 
fridge for 2-3 weeks before planting would be okay for their cold spell 
needs.  Does that sound right to you on the list?  I have a large area 
under two big shade trees from which I removed loads and loads of Boston 
Ivy (and poison ivy - makes me itch just to recall it) and I am going to 
scatter the Johnny Jump Up seeds there.  I can hardly wait to see their 
cute little faces coming up from where there is now nothing but brown 
dirt and leaf litter.
