Whew - thanks for the run on Dirty Threads. I've packed up the orders and will get them to the post office in a while.

This lot here is fresh. I'm struggling to get the range of greens I want for Night Gardener. Working outside in full sun and high humidity has a way of stupefying me.

Still not happy, although some interesting things have hatched. These will go into inventory soon.

The right blue the right yellow. I love mixing yellow green- lime or chartreuse.
And I love indigo blue.
