Hi Penny and All,
    Glad to hear that you're getting some relief for your foot problems.
When your feet or back hurt, it affects everything in the whole body.
    Have you ever seen the charts for pressure points? The best relief for
the worst headaches is a foot massage! It seems strange to me, but it really
    Now to gardening. I'm really getting into peppers this year. I planted
Anchos and Habaneros today. I have Sweet Banana, Bertha Bell, Jupiter Bell,
Poblano, Jalapeno M, and Anaheim Chile plants to transplant. Still haven't
found any Cubanelle plants, but Judy found some Cubanelle seeds today. I'll
start them tonight. I have some Chile Pequin seeds to plant directly in the
    Judy hit a seed bonanza today. She found Bushel Gourd, Bird House Gourd,
Cubanelle Peppers, Imperial 45 Cantaloupes (for hot and humid areas), &
    Friday, Judy found most of the pepper plants that I have to transplant.
I'm sure glad she is so enthusiastic about our garden. I'm not able to drive
anymore. I'm sure we would loose out on some oportunities to buy unusual
varieties, if we waited for the weekend. Lots of time the merchants only
order a small number of the less well known plants.
