    Thanks, I had a really hard time keeping leaves on the vine because of caterpillars, but I finally got a break

    We had this conversation back in 2006 in your passaflora post.......

    I found some seeds still in the dried pods & although they're 2 years old, I'll try growing some & if they sprout, I'll send you some seeds

    Thanks for sharing...

    p.s. The smoke wasn't blowing your way was it?? I was wondering how close the fires were to you down there....
    Thanks Can't wait to see your pics!
    The fires weren't near us, but some days you could really smell it!

    This week we have Pot. Cesar's Head 'Carolina Autumn', Epl. Merry Green 'Taida', Blc. Rustic Spots & Ascda. 'Bronze Grape'. I had quite a few spikes on my Epc. El Hatillo 'Santa Maria', but they all blasted. I'm wondering if it was from the heat?

    Wow, we had cold too but most of my plants made it through. The only thing we covered was the tomato plant that has about 1/2 dozen nicely growing tomatoes. And the only plant I lost was a pineapple plant. That's okay since I have about 6 others doing fine. Sorry to see you lost so many plants. The trumpet one will come back. Those are hard to kill!
