Gastil communicated from the USDA: "We do plan to digitize all of the USDA circulars in our collection, probably within the next 3 months or so. They will be available on this site: http://archive.org/details/…." That is wonderful news. The USDA Yearbooks of Agriculture have been among my favorite idle time relaxation reading since my teens, and I've even purchased used volumes that weren't in my father's library from Ebay and used booksellers. I hope that one of the readers of this listserv will let us know, when he or she finds these circulars actually posted on the aforementioned website. I'll bookmark the site now, but my bookmark list is longer than I can get through and survey on any regular basis. Too many interesting things, and not enough time. Best regards to all, Jonathan Knisely New Haven, CT USDA 6a (Galanthus still under the residual snow from our 34" earlier this month, and C. tommasinus showing some leaves, but no blooms yet on the south side of the garage where the snow's melted away next to the foundation).
