Re: Starting Hard seeds thanks

Thanks for the number of responses regarding my difficulties starting

Since the growing season is relatively short in Minnesota, I should be
able to get them out after the last freeze and put them around my pond.

And by the way, Jean, that was a cute story about your kittens, but you're
right.  It may have been more than I wanted to know about your
