   I want only 2 chemicals per plot.

   Sure. I keep working with the original data set and haven't yet fully
learned to create subsets as needed.

   What I mean that over all locations and chemicals the earliest date for
which there is data is 1980-03-01. However, some chemicals might not have
been required to be monitored before, say, 1990. If the pair in a given plot
have no data prior to 1990 (for example), that's what I want as the xlim.
