Rattus, up until last month I would have said I had a black thumb. I still have the plants from the funeral growing. I re-potted and must have done it right. I now am the proud mama of 17 planters (with 2 or three plants). I am slowly giving them away to my son's friends. That way, if they later die, I can say it wasn't because of me! My tomato and grn pepper seeds are finally starting to sprout. Spring is in the air!
