2012 Introductions . . . Part 6

This weekend I am headed toward the northeast and the Connecticut Daylily Society to present my program. I believe the meeting is at 1:00 PM Saturday and I am looking forward to sharing what I know with the club. Also looking forward to meeting Rich Howard and the other CDS members. Saturday afternoon Rich will be taking me to his home to see his operation which I am really looking forward to.

The last couple days I have been removing the ground cloth paths between the seedling beds in preparation for tilling under the 3500 seedlings. After the ground cloth was removed, I mowed off the tops of the daylilies and the weeds growing in the beds.Now to put the tiller on the Kubota and till them under.

Our weather made an abrupt change today, in the low 70s with night time temps in the 50s. Great working and sleeping weather.
