Hi Margaret,
    The doctor said that the only light at the end to the tunnel was the
train. The inevitable will eventually happen. I will be mobility challenged
I believe is the politically correct term. I'm going to get a wheel chair
with wide tires, chain drive and at least 7 hp, when that time comes.(;-}
    I have a physical therapist coming 13 miles out here to BFE so that they
can work on my hands and arms. Tomorrow, the 30th, I get the steroid
injections in my cervical discs. Boy, I'm looking forward to that!! (:-{
    Mean while, I am indeed still H&K gardening.
    I was given 5 packs of Basil seeds, Greek Miniature, Lettuce Leaf,
Sacred Purple Holy, Siam Queen Thai, Thai Lemon Basil.
    Somebody, please tell me what these things look like and what to expect.
Flowers? Color of flowers? Are the plants ugly or attractive? How do I use
these basils?
    Heading for the garden before it reaches 90*.
