I contribute on the ABC news/Good Morning America recipe board as well, and we also often have this issues... the favorite white meat part of the chicken is also problematical for us...

Even when your mind is NOT "in the gutter" they try to put it there. It's N-U-T-S (or I can even say that!) LOL

My father used to grow asparagras in Portland area. He always said it took 7 years to establish a productive bed.....but I figure that might have been before the time of root stock???????

Can someone tell me how well Amaryllis grows there? I'll be digging up my grandmother's bulbs (now in full bloom) and storing them away to bring with us. I don't know how sensitive they will be to the climate change.

They are precious to her, and likewise to me, so I really hope they'll survive. Her home is no longer in the family now, so these and the leather leaf that I also dug up are all that remain with us of her 58 year home and garden.

I am seeing what I call "amaryllis" growing in lots of front yards in sunny doorways in Gorham. A white or creamy white daffodil type flower ?

Similar, but not. Ours are a variety of colors. Grandma's favorite is the one she calls "Candycane". They're very stunning!

This is one that we have.

I was totally mixed up. I was confusing "jonquils" with "amarylis". I have only seen amarylis inside at christmas.
