Most of you have had a very hard winter this year, including us. Last fall I put about 120 potted seedlings in a water bed to see how they would take the winter, not knowing that we would have one of the coldest winters in history. As the winter came upon us, I expected to lose many of them, some Ev, some Sev, and a very few were Dor. They were in the freeze, thaw, freeze mode all winter standing in water.
Monday, I decided to go out and see the devastation and was completely surprised. NOT ONE POTTED PLANT WAS DEAD, NOT ONE!
Below is a picture of the waterbed that I took today, April 1, 2014, and NO, this is not an April Fool's joke.
I hate to do this, but I guess I have to give Tommy credit for the waterbed idea, but don't tell him. Besides, I am younger and better looking than him.
Life is very, very good.
