    Congrats on these...I’ve several times been similarly prompted to collect either / both the WHISPERS and SHADOWS series of anthos in HC 1sts, both of which I read most of back in the day. I’ve resisted so far, but one of these days... and pictures like this remind me why.

It died quicker than a bag of basil would have lasted in my fridge. So I decided to buy a self watering raised bed garden. Assembled it last week and planted two varieties of local strawberries, Dill , Parsley and two Basil plants. It also comes with a greenhouse cover which will stay in place while I still have freezing nights. The cover also protected the plants from the heavy rains and hail we had the day after I set it up. Filled it with water and did not even look at it again until today. Everything looks like it did great with the exception of the Basil, which did not fair well but is still alive. The local nursery had tomato plants in so I added a cherry tomato plant today. The lady at the nursery was sure to warn me that it needed frost protection. When I explained what I had she said it should work perfect for this plant. I have room for one more plant and it will be either Bell Pepper or Anaheim Peppers. When the frost threat passes the vinyl topper will be replaced by an insect cover. That should protect the plant from pests and rain. Looking forward to just snipping off herbs as needed.

    I just picked up a book that I’ve been looking for for a long time. I’m super excited to get it in hand. It should arrive this week and I’ll post pics when it does.

    Very disappointing for my first direct order from Folio. I have another Folio book and it’s fine, but you sure hope for better when you order direct. I will say their customer service to remedy the situation was top-notch. Hopefully the replacement will be okay.
    My replacement arrived today -- the original one took a month to arrive, but the replacement was here in a week w/ the int'l expedited shipping they used -- and it looks perfect.

    If anyone is interested in the original one, I have it listed on eBay (with defects disclosed both in text and pics). If you're from here and you buy it, let me know and I'll throw in a free tpb copy for reading, so you can keep the deluxe Folio HC pristine and free of unsightly fingerprints.

    This was my my first direct purchase from them as well. I will probably be a repeat customer however I would like the prices to be a little lower.


    Glad your copy was a good one...(my) problems aside, it’s a beautiful volume.

    I ordered it as well, sometime after my earlier post, and it arrived a week or so ago. There were some production issues with it, though, so had to request a replacement. That replacement is due to arrive tomorrow (Folio expedited the shipping). Look for the bad copy on eBay shortly.

    I did feature pics of it on Twitter a few days ago:
