I wonder if LowFog01 (Lisa) in Springfield, VA has tomatoes yet :D :D :D



No, no tomatoes yet - they won't even go in until after APR 17th. That's the last chance for a hard frost here according to the Farmers Almanac. We are getting ready though - buying plants, turning the soil and what not. I was up in PA today and run through some snow showers outside of Gettysburg - nothing was sticking. It was a great day for a road trip. :D

For those of you following my adventures in decorating with coal my landscaping attempts using coal has been postponed for a couple of weeks. Summit Breaker did not have any 40 to 50 lbs of lump coal on site today. Bummer! I did actually call before it left home but I had other business in the area, too. I’m moving ahead with the garden and will add the coal later. Lisa

There are 5 other breakers and 2 deep mines very close to Summit Anthracite You could of went to any one of them
and got lump coal. Next time you take a road trip let me know. I will Tell you how to get to them Not far from Summit
I 81 Exit 104 would be one of the breakers and two deep mines And Exit 112 has two breakers. Summit is Exit 107
Superior coal is 4.5 miles down the road from Summit. Pine creek coal co Breaker 2 miles Down from Superior coal

Thanks for the information Coalberner. I'll be making the trip in May I guess. I copied your reply to my general coal information file and will be in touch. Thanks again, Lisa
