Currently, first class postage is forty-four cents.
You can buy "forever" stamps at that price which will still be valid first class postage after the rates go up.
Rates go up so often that new first class stamps don't have a price on them anymore, which is a real pain in the @$$ when you're trying to figure out how much "make-up postage" on an envelope.

BTW, the USPS does not care if you pay full value for stamps, as long as they get full value--one of our local retailers was selling stamps at slightly less than face value in a coupon book, the theory being that they weren't losing a lot of money even if no one used the coupons, but the coupons had to be used there, so they would actually make money on the deal...

wow, sorry Auri Tech, I missed this....2 stamps will be fine....

For all those who sent envelopes....did you receive your seeds?  I always worry about the mail system loosing the mail or ripping the letters open....( my grandmother, Great aunt, mother, father and sister inlaw all worked in the post office....that's why I get so nervous...hahahahah!)

Thanks much!

FWIW (and that's probably not much), don't give up on these Amish Egg squash seeds.

I started 18 in one of those little jiffy greenhouse thingies probably 3-4 weeks ago. Initially only 4 came up. I thought, that's OK, I gotta put them in separate planter anyhow. The seperate planter thingy being half a pickle barrel. Since I replanted them, at least 5 more have come up. Here's a pic:



You can see the originals in the four "corners" and the others, for lack of anywhere else to go at the moment, in the middle and other four corners.

Doubtless anyone has to be a better gardener than I, so maybe no one else will have my issues, but just as an FWIW.

Also, I had real problems getting my peppers to seed, had to go buy some.

I'll post garden updates elsewhither...

Amisheggpicker -

I'm a newbie so didn't get in on the give-away. Would you be selling some seeds from this year's plants? It sounds like a good squash to try.

Some powdery white mildew got all of mine. We got two, really small squash before they expired. Not a problem with the seeds, they grew vigorously before that.

Darn.  I wish I'd know about milk and powdery mildew.  The stuff has been wreaking havoc with my roses.  I'll give it a try.
