Hi Everyone, God Bless You All! I wanted to bring something to your
attention that you probably already knew. Support your local food growers!
If you don't know where to go google it! There are farmer's markets up and
down the highways. They know a lot about house plants you want to grow &
maybe you want to want to venture out and try something of your own! You
don't pay the outragous shipping costs & the pollution it adds to the
environment! It is definately a win win situation! Your neighbor!

But the growing season will be lengthened in the temperate countries like the USA and Europe. Problem is that no one in those countries wants to work hard to actually plant things!

All so Westerners can eat steak & donuts.
