Thank you for the lovely pictures of the cat and the story of

the wolf hound. We also had a wolf hound that died at 8 years and that is about average. The boy showed great wisdom.

Sorry to hear you are still without power and heat! We have also been that way four days in the winter a number of years back. Fortunately have a wood stove so at least we had heat and melted snow for water. Hope you are restored to power SOON!

In regard to the soil. I mix layers of manure in with the soil and some vermiculite and perlite to hold moisture and break up the soil. After that I just keep the soil moist but not wringing wet. I also mist the plants now and then with a spray bottle. You will so enjoy this little project. The plants look better than they ever did in the store; vibrant color just like the picture shows. It is wonderful to watch them grow, because they start out as big plants! There is no waiting for a seed to grow. I am still amazed at having tried this and seeing it work. Just had to share it.
