    This is Wrong

    http://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-agriculture/seed-saving-seed-libraries-illegal-united-states.html

    Seed sharing and seed libraries deemed illegal in many American states

    may be considered illegal by some American states.

    some states actually including "giving away" in their definition of "selling,"

    informal seed swaps and seed libraries are a way to share in the spirit of cooperation, and as a way to preserve the legacy of local plant biodiversity

    To apply rules to hobbyists that are designed to regulate commercial operations is a bit mind-boggling

    Cinnamon To Root New Plants:

    Apply cinnamon to the stem when you are planting a cutting. It will stimulate growth in nearly every plant variety.

    No need for those hormone agents. Pour a spoonful of cinnamon onto a paper towel and roll damp stems in the cinnamon.

    Plant the stems in fresh potting soil. The cinnamon will encourage the stem to produce even more stems, while helping to prevent the fungus that causes damping-off disease.

    It's World Naked Gardening Day, beware of the birds — Who knew? I will "pass"……

    http://www.torontosun.com/2015/05/02/gardening-in-the-nude

    "People across the globe are encouraged to tend their portion of the world's garden unclothed as nature intended," the official WNGD website says.

    All that's involved is getting naked and making the world's gardens — whatever their size, public or private — healthier and more attractive," the site says. "Do it inside your house, in your back yard, on a hiking trail, at a city park or on the streets."

    The organizers say the event "runs no unwanted risk." Except maybe giving your neighbour a heart attack or getting stung by a wasp.
