I'm sorry Karen! Will try to get something to you guys soon. I got called back to work in the end of Feb. I work in a greenhouse and am exchausted till I get home. Then I have all the farm chores, etc... to do. My husband is an over the road truck driver, so all the chores, running the kids, etc... is all mine to do till he gets home on the weekends, so doesn't leave much time for anything else. At the green house we just finished up transplanting the annuals. I transplant up to 2,000 plants a day! Some of these plants are not even 1/2 inch long! It is so neat is see something so small grow into a huge beautiful plant. It really is a great job. Yesterday I trimed about 50 flats of pansies and moved them outside. If they get to tall and leggy, just trim back to about 3 inchs and they will come back much prettier. It has been so rainy and cloudy here, it made them stretch and get ugly. Then I moved a lot of perennials to the outside beds and then I pinched all the dead flowers in the hanging pots in one of the green houses. This was about 500 pots! So till the end of the day I was TIRED. Anyhow, I will try to get something soon.Also, I had a nasty flu. It started about 3 weeks ago and I'm still not completly over it. I have been making some new things and I did do a craft show a few weeks ago. I didn't realize anyone was interested in my posts. Thanks for boosting my confidence! Have a great day!

Thanks, Jo - bless your heart! Just good to know you are doing okay, although I was exhausted just hearing about all you do and then having to come home and do farm chores too! When in the world do you craft? Not to worry, we will be waiting anxiously, just give a post when you get time! We all really appreciate you!

Dear Jo, I really enjoyed and benefited from your posts too, although after reading about all the work you have been doing with plants I may have to lay down and take a nap now! Rest up and then give us some more of those good hints. Mona Lea in Southeast Missouri

Wow, Jo, you make what I do seem like nothing! I really enjoy your crafting posts also, and am "stockpiling" for next month when it starts getting hot and I'll be hunting for something to do inside in the afternoons!
