Hey tom – glad your grandmother is doing well, and that you’re enjoying the weather on the east coast! 🙂 Back in CA, it’s been rather cool and semi-overcast here a LOT this spring, which has been REALLY nice. BTW, it seems like you’ve been gone forever – has it been more than 6 weeks yet? LOL. John’s onions are sprouting all over the place and he got a weedwacker, which is really good for taking out prickly thistle bushes around here, although we’re leaving some around the edges of the other pasture so we can enjoy the height they grow to, and the amazing purple original star-trek-ish flowers.
