Brain fart yet again!

These brain farts are coming way too close together these days. Every year I plant caladiums all along the front of my house and each year they are just beautiful. It just dawned on me last night that it's almost time to plant them and I haven't even ordered them yet. Soooo....this morning before church, I was on the computer ordering 100 caladiums. I always plant Carolyn Whorton's since my yard guru told me they would withstand heat better than most.

Since my tomato dilemma, more than a few people have told me that I must protect the stems of the young plants from cut worms by wrapping the stems with foil or putting matches or toothpicks next to the stem so the worm cannot wrap around the plant. I will be doing that tomorrow to the ones that I have left and most certainly will do it to the replacement plants I have to buy now!! Who knew? Apparently, everyone but me! Dad never did that to his plants, so I didn't know. They never cut his tomatoes down.
