Yup, me and Old Nick get along just fine!

I do have a greenhouse but it only houses potted Onco seedlings until they
are 2 years old, at which point they go outside.  I put the covers on the
Onco bed last weekend - good job because we just got 6" of rain in 2 days.
They are nice and dry and will stay that way until mid-September.

Spent today potting up paeony seedlings - they look great.

pact with the devil?  :-)  just kiddin...

he's done lots of research and tries to give them what they need to stay

it also helps to have a greenhouse where you can control the amount 
of water they receive in the summer months... i think john has one of 
those ?  not sure.
