    Hi! I met you guys at the “green event” that was here in College Point, at MacNeil Park. I finally planted the seed balls you gave me and I did what you said…since I was planting them in flower pots I broke them up. I really hope I did it correctlly…anyway, just watered them and we’ll see what happens! I hope you’re having a Happy 4th of July!

    Take care now.

    Alice
