Here are the garlics that I planted last fall. Also, see the chard that wintered over?
But here is the big news: today I planted 10 new Golden Everbearing raspberries surrounding some volunteers that spread from our main raspberry patch.
The asparagus bed is still sleeping - stay tuned!
Also this morning, I completed a new Access report of Species Richness data, that used some (ahem) clever code to programmatically sort a specific number of columns left-to-right based on the values in Row 1. Actually, I used the Macro Recorder to write the basic code - I just had to adapt it for Access VBA.
To make that macro code work, I also needed a way to convert an Excel column NUMBER into the ALPHA Excel column heading (that is, I need to convert column #34, for example, into the string "AH". Thanks to geniuses on the Internet, the formula for doing this is simply (the variable 'maxSpecies' contains the column number):
Left(xlSheet.Cells(1, maxSpecies).Address(1, 0), InStr(1, xlSheet.Cells(1, maxSpecies).Address(1, 0), "$") - 1)
I have no idea why this works, but I pasted it in and it does. Cool, huh?
