I think I am remembering you mentioned a grass mix that you used for pasture.  If so, what, when and where did you find it?  Any suggestions?

What a small world! Jon is a friend of ours. We'd love to have you visit sometime. Your wife would probably like to see our studio (Indigo Street Pottery) and as well the garden. Weekends are good for us. We are out in East Mesa, so a bit of a haul for most people. With the weather cooling though, field trips are nice. Just let us know: email

Do you mean additional images that are not posted on my page or higher resolution files of the same images? The images on my PPG page can be downloaded from there.
