Thank you! I'm glad you like the dialogue and that you think it's going well. It makes me happy you like my descriptions and all. I had like 11 tabs to plants open. I'm from the South and I know what's native, but some stuff came later than when this is set (kudzu wasn't a major issue down here till the 1900s, lol). Yeah, I'm hoping I can work on chapter 4 before classes start since I'll have a reasonable amount of down-time before classes start on the 10th, but who knows.
