Hi Jeffie - Keep building those gardening skills and sharing them around. And BTW it would be great to see a pic of yourself up here - it really helps.

So if you need help getting your photo up here, please sing out. To get you started on that, you can go to "My Page" and on the left hand side you'll see "Change My Photo"
