Jill, I did go after those houtania because where they are located,
they fail to develop the red coloration. The sun is over there from
1:00pm until 7:00pm, but it is not doing them any good.....

I had forgotten how AWFUL they smell when being pulled! Actually,
I had a helper here on that day, and he bolted from the area as if
he had been shot...  Next thing I knew, he returned wearing one of
my spray masks, but even that did not help him. And as luck would
have it, a skunk seems to have made a nest about 30 feet away, in
my neighbor's back yard shrubbery. Just the existance of the nest
causes the characteristic odor to permeate the area. I told the
helper to hold his breath, and do his job, just as I was busy doing...

Whew!  Yucko ------
