The premature end of the 2020 daffodil season has given me some time to catch up on DaffTube installations. The recording of the poeticus panel of Willis Wheeler, Lib Capen, and Meg Yerger from the 1978 ADS convention made it into DaffTube in October, just before the fall board meeting in Lynchburg. Now we have three videos from Lynchburg and the remaining nineteen audios from some very old audio cassettes. If you are staying home and need a dose of daffodils, try exploring in DaffTube (and DaffLibrary). Here’s what’s been added to DaffTube recently.

    Really enjoyed the video Bill, A class production!! You and the lady doing the moderating were super.  Loved seeing your beds and garden. Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

    I thought it was a great watch too. Nice to get to know Bill and to enjoy his garden. I worry about 500 crosses per year. Okay with one seed and one bulb per cross. At this minimal rate that will be 2500 bulbs by first flowering time, 5 years of evaluation 5000 potential bulbs, 5 years of increase to say 10 bulbs per seed. I am glad that you are still a young man Bill. Of course with high quality parents there will be fewer rejects as well. We look forward to seeing some amazing flowers from Carterton.
