Yes, Google Docs has a spreadsheet very similar to Excel.  But it's on "the cloud" so you can access it from any computer or device with an internet connection.  

About borage, perhaps it may like zone 10 in the fall and winter, but so far in our spring and summer I've been unsuccessful to get it to grow bigger than 6 inches tall, and the leaves are so bleached out or pale.  I've tried in pots, the ground, and of course in the boxes.  But you know me Sanderson, I don't give up easily!  Laughing
dstak, I planted borage in spring and it got HUGE.  However, as the summer progressed, it became rather spindly and I had to stake all of them.  They did not seem to like excess rain because some of their lower leaves became yellow and splotched with brown.  I honestly thought they would make a good plant for boarders... but not so... they were enormous!  The bumblebees went crazy over them though.  I wish you success with yours.  Evidently, once you've planted them, they will come back again because of the copious amounts of seeds that they drop.

That explains why borage doesn't do well here this time of year.  This is our rainy season, and normally we get torrential downpours day after day after day.  Although this has been an incredibly dry summer.  

Last fall and winter here I got borage to grow about 15", but I think nematodes got to it, which brings us back to the main subject here.  Laughing
