Actually I'm not sick of winter yet, but I do get a little thrill when the Hedgehog Hill Farm catalog arrives. I can't do Barter Day this year but if you can get to Sumner, that's a good deal too... you get to pick from a long list of available days, you learn about greenhouse operations while you work, and you get a $50.00 free plants coupon. In the catalog, you get lots of freebies for ordering by March 1. I'll post a link if you're interested, the deal applies to online orders too. They have only plants & gifts, no seeds, and it's pick-up only.

Here is a link that might be useful: Hedgehog Hill Farm

RE: Spwing!

the T'ai Chi would be fun, err what is a hypertufa class?

RE: Spwing!

Hypertufa is really cool! It's a kind of concrete made from Portland cement, sand and peat (That's where my problem is - I wonder if they would consider substituting coir instead of peat?) Anyway, you can make big troughs and fountains out of it that look like stone, and they're so light you can pick them up and tote them all over your yard when they're empty.

Peat moss is considered sustainable because there's so much of it in Canada, but it's not renewable unless you consider 500 years an acceptable renewal cycle. Coir is cocnut fiber, which some have been using as a substitute.
