    Hi. Sounds like fun, but I can't come on Sat at 1:00pm. Are you doing it any other time as well? I'd love to do this with you! We need to reconnect! Maybe I can come one day the next week...let me know.

      Hi Judy, I'll be hosting an organic/biological gardening class in the beginning of april and I will briefly be talking about seeds then. I'm out of town most of next week but will be seed starting in earnest as soon as I get back on the third. Maybe come by that week or week after and I'll show you the green house.

    This may be a bad time as Massachusetts schools are out for winter vacation and there are probably more people who want to hear this, but cannot.

      Unfortunately, I'll be out the following weekend and did not want to wait too long. I'll have it again next year and will plan not to have it during vacation.
