After many calls and messages - none of which were returned - the limited warranty had expired, so I went with the trusted Midas group. On my way back home, I also stopped at the greenhouse and planted four short rows of various carrots and two short rows of fennel. I love being in the greenhouse - even with no sun, it is warm and smells of loam. All it was missing was my DS Melanie.
