One last word of farewell, Dear Master and Mistress.


Whenever you visit my grave,

say to yourselves with regret

but also with happiness in your hearts

at the remembrance of my long happy life with you:


"Here lies one who loved us and whom we loved."


No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you,

and not all the power of death

can keep my spirit

from wagging a grateful tail.

How does everyone plant small seeds like beets and carrots?
I was considering making a 4 foot pipe with a funnel taped to the top. I could drag the pipe along and drop seeds into the funnel.

Mixing small seed in fine sand makes seeding easy.

Nice book, thought the little wire splicing tool looked really useful so I'll try to make one some time. I've mixed small seeds with wall paper paste before, you can pipe it out of a plastic bag with a small hole cut in one of the corners. I think you can use gelatin for the paste if you want.
