Needed Photos

Ok, here are some of the plants that are in the database but we've not gotten photos for yet, or the photos are from the days when we logged on to the website with a 14k modem and they're not usable. Some we discarded where 100X100 k and pixelated, couldn't tell if it was a bear or a tree.
Some of these plants we will delete as we are no longer growing, and probably never will, others I know we may even still have the plant growing here, and have a photo, but neither are in the database.
This is our internal list of to be done that I thought I'd share with you. If you have a photo of one or more of these and want to donate it's use to the website that would be great. The photo needs to be yours though, not from the web.
(I'm deleting them as I find them....)
