Particularly pertinent to me is the part where you admit to making the same mistakes over and over again. Thank you for admitting that. How I TRY to not make the same mistakes time and again... I have adopted a new basic creed: I'm allowed to kill the same plant three times before I give up (until I have strong evidence of specific things I can do to prevent a fourth failure). At any rate, thanks for the giggles this morning, and the invitation to think again about my gardening strategies. You are the BEST!
