Not necessarily, there are only about 110 members of this list and most of those lurk. Our highest
number of members was 150 about two years ago. This includes the regular list and the digest. We've
lost about 10 members in the last month and picked up 4 new ones. I think most people aren't
gardening yet.

Miz Anne and I are trying to get our spring garden in today but probably won't make it, the Mantis
tiller won't start, first time ever. So, Monday it will go to the shop and right now we're taking a
small break from turning over the rye grass with shovels.

We have tomatoes and chiles in the greenhouse that are in excess of 24 inches tall, have fruit and
blooms on them, and desparately need to be planted.
