IRIS LISTS: Alverta Symes would probably appreciate your lists including all new varieties you acquired for your garden. This is for our sale cards. It helps to know ahead of time which new varieties may show up at our sales, so that cards with pictures can be prepared ahead of time.

Shed Progress from Pete:
It’s been a long hard grind this month as Swede has been gone for the month. It’s been just me and the siding has been started and I’m ½ way there. Still have to put on the T-111 Sheeting on the upper outside walls and then finish making the doors for our side and the back side as well. Hope to get this all done before the weather turns bad.
