Thanks again to Ellen, Mone, Annette, Jasmine, Luvtogarden, and all the stalwarts. I am sorry the heat made so many ill / tired, but I am still glad you were able to come. Evanston felt at least 10 degrees cooler than Buffalo Grove! What a contrast with last year's constant rain. I have been very restless wanting to plant everything, - this is my one week off- but don't want them to suffer, so have only done the ones that will be in shade. Jqsen picked up her plants with much eagerness Saturday afternoon.
Thanks for the tomato list, Annette. I've now ID'd most, and those others might have been brought by someone else. Oddly, I seemed to have chosen mostly cherry tomatoes?! But that's fine, I do like them.
All the botanical treasures are very much appreciated by me, and the 2 friends who are excited to be getting theirs soon.
