Shelly, I am pretty involved with MS.  My sister-in-law has it and I work at a rehab hospital promoting our MS program.  I will also be walking for MS on Saturday, April 30th, in my home town here in Maine.  I totally understand.  For my sister-in-law, she loves her gardens.  I have just introduced her to this site.  Please feel free to friend her:  Kara.  She may respond and may not, but I am sure you guys could share your love for gardening.

"Yeah but you get heaps colder, so I,m sure you feel your heat the same as I feel mine. The plants don,t like our heat however , what I grow would not survive if I did not water them during summer. In fact a lot of people have stopped growing plants…"

"Thank you Keryn, you obviously are fertilizing just right!  Mine are indoors, but it has been a relatively cool summer.  I will try just a little fertilizer.  At least the plants look healthy and still alive!"
