Thanks for all of the advice. Feeling a lot more confidant now.
Swords - I am sorry to be leaving also. One of the reasons I moved to Minnesota was for the diversity of flora. This state has an amazing abundance of carnivores, all a hop, skip and jump from top to bottom, and side to side. Not only is it the Land of Lakes, it is equally the Land of Wetlands. I'll miss it!!!
If you haven't been, get up to Grand Marais and see the Pings. It'll knock your socks off.
Happy growing, Chuck
