  1. We havea very large yard with a nice grove of hardwood trees,with 3 flower and usually 2 vegetable gardens ,however my lady had 3 laser back operations so we went vertical on a chain link fence for vegetables had pretty good luck ,tomatoes,melon,squash etc,we tried to stay green, but still feel amateur

  2. Considering Czech was the first language it got translated into, it baffles me to see it’s not available in a Czech version?
    Let me know if you can’t find the translation, I’m happy to supply you with a new file.
    Cheers, Max
