    Nyboy! My darling boys favorite bit of fun is blowing dandelion seeds into the wind. I must grit my teeth so as to allow them that childhood joy. My daylily beds by now have the deepest most beautiful soil after years of mulching them with leaves and providing them with manure and fertilizer. The dandelions get embedded in the soil and grow HUGE! I have been spending the last week or so trying to dig them out. I have a spear head shovel, the best ever by the way, and I can dig out the taproot in most cases. I have fed them to may horse taproot and all. When I call him and he sees me with weeds he comes right over and munches away. He also loves chick weed when I hand it to him. He does not seem to forage it for himself, weirdly enough.

    Nyboy, now that your mulberry trees have leaves again, I wanted to let you know I dried a box of them last fall for Harvey. Lost track of the box and didn't get them shipped. What I tried -- letting the leaves soak overnight in water -- seemed to make them look almost like off the tree fresh just as I'd hoped. I should'a kept better track of stuff.
