They all say "size". Did you try making the font bigger, or just a random cyber-glitch? I had a similar issue when I was using IE after one of the last forum updates. Now I use FireFox or Chrome. When in doubt, I blame it on my cats!

Very cool. Getting a serious MM must be a challenge. My first year one of my best beds was when I ran out of money and dumped straight, almost finished compost into the bed. I let it sit for a couple of weeks but that baby was prolific. I figured if it works for Mel for third world countries it is good enough for me until I can get the stuff I need. 

Although NC is hot and humid this must be a different thing altogether. Always something new to learn. And bugs!

Look forward to more news.

I am living in Thailand and I have a big problem getting anything to come up.  I now have some chinesse greens coming and they are local seeds.  Even with local seeds a lot of them don't sprout.  I got a lot of seeds from the UK but no luck yet.  I have a lot of gooseberry seeds and they sprout really well. I don't know much about them but will learn.

Hi rrbeckn.  Gooseberries are good for pies & canning...  Be careful of the thorns though!  I've heard they can be vicious.

I hope you great success

I hope you great success with your gardening projects you have going in your area. The condition there is quite similar to what I have here on Dinagat Island, Surigao del Norte except we probably have heavier and more consistent rains than in your area.

I collected some seed from my summer garden - chives, lemon basil, yellow cayenne peppers, ghost peppers and red scorpian peppers.  I've planted seeds in cups of all except the ghost.

I found a sale for a dollar a brick of this http://www.wondersoil.net/store/wondersoil-products/brick-plus.html.  Bought all 6 that were left and sent a care package to myself before leaving the States.  I'm going to add to the vermiculite/compost mix that failed last year and see what happens.  

I also brought some packs of tomato, kale and hanover salad seeds.  We got some kale last year.
