Sorry about your BIL. Flu sounds benign but so many people die from it every year.
I know when I've had severe bouts, I felt like dying.
I just came from Lowe's and I wish I had my camera. They had tomato plants. They were large but they were $15 ea.. How does one get $15 of tomatoes off of a single plant?
I thought $4 was high for single plants.
Don't people know what seeds are?
