Re: Where is everybody?

Didn't get nearly that much done. But I did [finally] get my Oregon driver's license. Tomorrow, I hope, I'll get some micro-irrigation sprinklers to two new areas, one where we want to plant black currants and the other where we want to plan black raspberries. Maybe the sprinklers will soften the ground enough to dig some holes and prep them with compost and manure.

Andrea, have you ever seen the variegated Rhapis excelsa? From Thailand. Super rare; super expensive; super slow growing.

Quiet tonight-I managed to get in the yard this evening. Only 92 and 60% humidity. I repotted my Cordyline "Miss Andrea", a maple leaf begonia, lady palm (Rhaphis excelsa) and a few other things. Clipped back monster wisteria, planted a summer wisteria (different genus & species) and watered. Just got out of the shower as I was covered in dirt, OFF, and sweat. But it was a good night-made me feel better. Got my large bird bath placed where I wanted it. So, things are coming along. Definitely slower than early this summer but I figure if I can do this a couple times a week by fall I may only have clean-up
to do. How's everyone else?
