Any word yet, Pitmom?
Only someone who has loved and lost a pet understands, Karen.
Guess what? I have little wee peppers on a pepper plant in my garden! It is an Italian frying pepper, a Jimmy Nardello, and they have been hardy and durable ever since I started them as seeds. They grew faster than the other peppers, and now have 5 peppers and just as many more blooms.
The water and now the heat are what the garden requires. We have been at 90 both yesterday and today.
For those that garden, this will amuse you. I decided to plant vegetable amaranth this year. I followed the directions and planted the seeds in a small area in my garden. Apparently, I didn't cover the small seeds well enough, or a big wind kicked up. Anyway, the amaranth never came up where I planted it. Instead, I have been pulling these unfamiliar weeds for two weeks. Yeah, it was the amaranth. So, I replanted the spot, and covered it with burlap to ensure it will germinate in place. **grins**
