My brother Eric came home from the hospital today. Several years ago, he had to have a stent implanted in his heart. A second cardiac vessel has narrowed since then, and he had to have a second stent. I'm just glad that they found it in time.

I've sold all of my columbines, cardinal flowers, rudbeckia, and hibiscus- even the ones that I intended to keep for myself. All of these were 2-year plants started last season. I've developed a good market for the second year plants because people are getting great results with them. Time to get to work on this year's crop.

I visited my friend Ty's  orchard. He has 400 more trees to plant, 700 more to trellis, and umpteen rootstocks to graft. He showed me his new chip-budding device-very nice! There's 13-15 inches of snow in the orchard, but it's supposed to get up to 68 degress F on Friday, and 73 on Saturday and Sunday. He'll be in the mud, and I'll be shoveling horse manure for my compost pile. Fun-here we come!
