  • Sure helps a burn and stops the hurt in a kitchen environment.

  • We'll have a few extra chairs. LOL The meeting room is great but our small group is almost swallowed up by it. Sure hope you can make it.

    I may bring some other indoor plants to give away as well. Got to make room and I have this annoying habit (at least to my wife)of not being able to throw any plants or cuttings away if they have even a spark of life.

    I've been having a particular hard time of rooting Stevia cuttings. Lost half of them but those that still have healthy leaves might just make it. Maybe I need to treat them like African Violet cuttings and place them in an intensive care unit that keeps the humidity high.

    I seemed more than humid lately to me, but a plant can take (need) a lot more.

    Cindy, if you are out there, write to me at Steve@mybedfordcounty.com to see if tonight is a good time to pick up our "house guest".

  • Great meeting folks even though I forgot we have changed the time to 6:30 and Deb had the car with the larger screen and projector so all we could look at was my laptop.

    Five new faces in one night is just about as good as when we first started.

    Mark of chefgrape blogging fame brought us some home baked cookies that had no trouble disappearing and another Mark and his family brought a whole new perspective to our meetings.

  • I actually got educated a little on a few plants...I am so glad ya'll enjoyed those cookies, they were better the next day don't ya think?...they really needed to dry and soak up a few yums to get the best flavor....My friend that was visiting ended up very excited to rummage through all the different pots that I had in my storeroom to find one for his aloe vera....he may have left that meeting with a keen sense for a new hobby!

  • We were supposed to save some for the next day? Oops, didn't happen that way.

    Jeff can grow them inside easily enough. Potting soul, moist not wet and indirect sunlight. If he puts them in direct sunlight they will turn brown. They may survive but that green looks so much better.
