Had a tangle with a yellow jacket. I've changed my opinion about the little darlings, at least for today. Spray all you want! Kill the little stingers! It wasn't good enough to get my ankle. It then flew up my dress and ... ouch! Right thru the leggings! That's my #wildlifewednesday story. #stungonthebum #ouch 9.19.18

No! Kim, I don't understand. I started them inside under light, but not on heat. They were in one flat 8 x 8 container. Seed starter soil. I had hundreds of them. Dwindling down now because I carelessly left some in sun too long first day out. Oops! Try try again Kim! @Mikekally

I got some started finally last year Laura but I must've gone through two full packets of seed just to get 4 plants. They just kept disappearing after they'd germinated! Either slugs or too hot in the greenhouse! @columbiariver

They don't seem to like heat so I'll bet if you sowed some in trays in the house maybe.

This is about half of them. They're all potted but not individually. Just enough to get good soil and more space for now. My living room is full Jeff! There's no room for people! You will need that extra greenhouse because gtags seed sharers are brutally generous. Oh my, we have such troubles! @jeatacake
