BX rate change

I only remember one loss in all my years of purchasing from the BX.  It was
just 4 months ago.  I bought a Griffinia bulb in the midst of a hard freeze
in January.  I decided it was my fault for ordering a tender bulb at a time
of year I would have NEVER bought it from a normal mail order source, for
obvious reasons.

For a PBS policy on perishables my recommendation is simply not to transact
them during killer cold weather.  And if you can't resist the gamble when
something like a Griffinia comes up?  Well, then it really is caveat emptor.

Even in the dead of winter there is occasionally a week or two with temps in
the 40s & 50s.  I should have had the foresight to ask Dell to hold my
shipment until warmer weather moved in.  Next time, I will.

Just my two cents...
