"Last summer I found four tomato plants in the garden next to the compost pile. I dug them out and planted them in a bucket not expecting them to live. This soil has some kind of wilt, my Mother tells me. We have not been able to grow tomatoes…"

Those flowers were the old fashioned kind of chrysanthemum . I have three colors of these and they thrive here. They just have a single bloom. Good luck if you try some. They are much hardier than the greenhouse grown ones.

"Keryn I wish I made that much money then I could quit worrying about things that need to get paid. I have to have a huge sale with all the junk at the farm and more plants from here. Everything there is dead from no water for the past 2 years."
