Aw shucks, y'all. Or as we say in my country: I say, chaps, awf'ly spiffing of you to say so (blush), but absolutely no trouble! (Actually not many of us talk like that but we like to amuse the tourists.)

Old Git's persistent dedication to posting interesting and valuable information on the forum is to be admired and imitated. Thanks for the garden, growing, and cold storage ideas and for God's sake, keep on!
Sincerely, Stan Faryna

Indeed! You have been a fountian of info :o) I have been dutifully archiving the post for the Preparation archive although they must be reposted online soon.

For all the joy and info you have brought us, especially on gardening, after you find your dream house, let us know if there are any plants you would like us to send your way to get you going again - sort of a Yourdonite legacy to a special member of the family!

How very kind of you all! But it's only fair to mention that I have a lot of time on my hands at the moment and I'm sure if others had the same amount of time, they would look for helpful stuff to post too. Besides, even with the creaks I can still type over 100 wpm. (Almost as fast as I can talk! Well, maybe not THAT fast!)
Brooks, you should know I have dozens of pots out there, all with plant cuttings or divisions growing happily in them! Then there are pots of tomatoes, and yesterday I bought eggplant and bell pepper plants to put in pots. . . I was just wondering this morning how I was going to move them all. Guess we'll have to rent a special U-Haul truck just for the plants!

Well - I'm not impressed at 100 wpm typing - I can do that too - if they're short words and you don't mind misspelling 3/4 of them by a little bit. After all, the letters and spaces will all be there someplace, just a little out of position every now and then....8<)

LOL, Robert! Being an Old Git, though, I frequently forget where I put my glasses and so read through a haze and don't notice the odd typo, mine or anyone else's, especially, as you say, if a word has the right number of letters in it. What's that quote about age, something to do with skin getting all wrinkly as we get older but the eyesight goes too so you can't see it. The quote is quite funny, I wish I could remember it. I know, I know, gingko is good for memory but I keep forgetting to take it.
People have been looking at the house and it's peak time, so if we're going to sell it will be in the next few weeks. I think we may take it off the market around mid-May/beginning of June if we don't sell soon. That means I'll disappear from your screens (whew, almost blown over by some big sighs of relief!) while we get our stuff back from storage and I rearrange the whole house to accommodate all the supplies and our beloved clutter. It'll be quite some time before I get back here as a regular--there are so many projects on hold.

Old Git, I sent an answer just under your previous answer, but it obviously went dodo (that's happened a few times lately :-(). Anyway, i had to point out that the correct answer to all these compliments is "Oh, Gee!"
PS Keep up the good work, please. This will be my first year ever gardening, and I've no doubt that I'll need your help!
