Russell

We just got back from Ireland and while visiting the Jameson Distillery in Midleton, County Cork, Ireland we ran across one of the still and thought it might give you some encourgament on your copper dome. This one is a wee bit bigger than yours but is still beauty.

Russell,
somewhere along the line, you were sending seeds for your tomatoes to friends within the USA and Canada. I do not think it is possible to get seeds into Japan so I have to start from scratch to get some good tomato plants.

A few weeks ago, I got some seeds from an agriculture center and asked them about collecting seeds and replanting. They said that everything they use are hybrids and collecting seeds will not give you the same plant because of the process used in hybridation (if that is a word).


then I mentioned heirloom plants--and he said "Yes" the seeds can be harvested and the resulting offspring will be the same as the original plants. Gee whiz--this is a real problem in the world! If everything is a hybrid and something happens then we have lost the total dna or heritage of the plant that we are trying to utilize.

Tell me more about heirloom plants and where to get seeds to start my own seedbank for good species of plants. ciao mikku

They have indeed. The smaller batch was the transferred sprouts from the peat pellets. 54 plants, none list yet...

No plants here yet, we had 10 inches of snow on Wed. It melted some yesterday but is still hanging around this morning.

Good thing. If they were from lowes they would probably grow in twisted and split and you would have to return them, only to have to take store credit because you couldn't find the receipt.

I understand fully what you mean and very much agree. But, for those that don't: I usually buy my lumber elsewhere . The "maters" though, will probably be OK, even if if they are a little "twisted" .

Oh no Lowes lumber is just perfect...a 200:1 ratio of bad lumber to good is so much fun to sort through. I get all my concrete forms there.
