Subject: Another follows in mom’s footsteps
Received: April 1, 2009

“Hi there Mom. Your ambition to rise to the occasion, “super-seeds” many, including myself! If it were not for your determination, perserverance and skill, all those “learn-ed” moments growing up would have been lost. Watching your example, was not lost on me. I only hope to learn as much as you, with the same passion and be able to apply it.

Another feather in my cap! Wasn’t expecting it but am very happy to see children follow in one’s footsteps. Congrats on your new business venture. -Mandy

Subject: Semp.archnoideum glabrescens alba
Received: April 29, 2008

Just to let you know that the wee semp. (this was a challenge which this gentleman met and completed well!) survived here in 3 spots. It actually thrived & like some of its cousins, it grew under the snow. It was planted in a hypertufa pot, a raised gravelly bed and left on the ground in 3 1/2″ pots. All plants made a bright, healthy green appearance a couple of weeks ago. Thank you for mailing the plants. Hope the growing year is good for you.

Subject: Everyone Benefited from the Bounty

Received: April 14, 2010

Thank you for your G.H. news. I enjoy reading it. The weather has been beautiful and I am looking forward to planting. 2009 was the first time I visited your G.H. My heirloom tomatoes did beautifully (I still have some in the freezer) The herbs….were also amazing…. neighbors, friends and family benefited from the bounty. As a result my…..mother (an avid gardener her whole life) has decided I must take her to your G.H. My mother and I look forward to your opening and making those decisions as to which plants will be finding a new home with us.

Subject: Great collection of Heirlooms

Received: May 1, 2010

I just found your website and WOW! What an extensive selection of heirloom tomatoes plants you have! If its not too much trouble, I’d love to receive the PDF file with the tomato seeds you have. I was impressed with your collection of heirloom egg plants and sweet peppers, too….. Thank you kindly.

Subject: Alpine Babies

Received: July 26, 2010

…..those alpines I got last year did surprisingly well. Mind you one died before I even planted it. (…but that is what happens when you don’t take proper care of new babies…) Not only did most survive the early cold, most bloomed very nicely. I am going to let what is there go for another year before I add more.

Have never seen it bloom so beautifully. What a spread it has! ….and yes, the bunnies and the chippies are all doing well, too. Holes being dug everywhere. ….Enjoy the harvest….well deserved.

Subject: Heirloom Seeds

Received: Sept, 2008

I really enjoyed reading your newsletter, especially about your vegetables. I know we made a request to have you speak about Alpine Plants to the ……Society, but I’m sure some of our members would be interested in your Heirloom Seeds as well. There won’t be enough time for another presentation that evening, but if you mention something about them, it might spark enough interest for the people to plan a trip to your G.H. in the spring.
