I'm glad to see that Diane is working on tabulating our reports.  I've stopped volunteering to build new databases, so I was not going to offer.  I was however going to suggest getting a copy of Jack Elliott's database of germinations in Excel and use that as a model.   Since Diane has already started, it's sort of a moot point.  The important thing is to get the data entered before it piles up into a mountain.  Diane, can you export your Appleworks table to a format readable into Excel?

I don't remember anything going from seed to bloom in one year, and I don't store my data in a way that lets me find that out.  It should make a very interesting study, once enough reports have been posted.  Once we can see who has been able to get faster bloom out of which genera and species, we are all going to want to know their secrets!  The older I get, the more in a hurry I am. Time's a'wasting!
