Bag Lady of the Week

Cathy Lively not only uses her reusable shopping bags but also her trusty cooler to keep things on ice.

Thanks Cathy!!

Hort Tip

Pot Amaryllis bulbs 8 weeks before you want them to bloom. They may not bloom if potted in too large a pot. There should be no more than 1" of space on each side of the bulb. At least 1/3 of the bulb should be above the soil line.
