The Pests and Diseases forum
Well, with Carolyn off in her Summer of Surgery :) and a couple of regulars too busy to post, it's kind of been up to me to try and keep the Pests and Diseases forum rolling. Sometimes I manage it, sometimes I don't... I've been trying to stop in every couple days, so even if it seems like nothing's happening over there, I have been going through and answering posts in marathon sessions every few nights.
I had to stay home from work this morning, so I thought I'd answer more posts... unfortunately, the reason I had to stay home is that I had a chemical exposure (ethylene ethers are bad for me) and I'm not feeling up to shouldering responsibilities right now. I'm hoping to at least get out and feed a few plants, but all I want to do right now is forget about all the stuff I have to do, and maybe sleep a little. :/
I may be back on my feet tomorrow -- we'll see -- but I wanted to let people know that I am still keeping an eye on the place, it's just that between part-time work, staying on top of school paperwork, all the muscle I have to exert to whip the yard into some sort of shape, and little crises like this one, I don't always have as much time or energy (or brainpower) as I need to put into it. I spend a decent amount of attention and research on each reply, and I don't want to just toss out half-answers.
I'm glad to see that most of the posts aren't going unanswered; even if you don't have all the info you need to solve a problem, just letting the person know that they're not being totally ignored helps a lot. I appreciate those of you who are chipping in over there, in any capacity.
Here's hoping I'm a little stronger tomorrow.
