    Nice to see what the folks were saying seven years ago. Many of the "lost" varieties have been saved by the folks on this forum.

    You better believe it! I chop,cut and stick like a fool allllll summer long. But there's always somebody that collects,maybe does a cutting and then never associates with anybody. Think of the varieties he's personally responsible for loosing.

    Yea,yea, but it's kind of hard to keep something going when your only plant dies, and it was too small to get the first cutting off of.
