RE: Sassafras

Hi ceres,

Your veranda/porch/deck really sound great.

A cautionary note however, if the wood posts you are covering with metal are
the "new" green wood (not CCA) the composition of the preservative in the
new stuff tends to eat up metal.  If you have the new ones, perhaps a PVC
cover would last longer.  This information I learned the hard way.

Good luck with your project, Rich in Z-5 where it has rained (with the usual
accompanying show) the last couple of nights.

Sorry, again.  I didn't sleep last night and it has been a long day.  This
should be 'article on the Sassafras & Hinkley'.
     We finished our deck today by adding the railing & benchs.  You may
remember we replaced the deck floor last fall with the man made product,
Trex.  We
used that which has a wood grain for the flooring but all sizes of wood we
needed for the railing & benches was not available yet in the wood grain.
had hoped it would be available this spring but it was not so used some
 I doubt that anyone will notice but we know.
    I painted my ornate metal table & 2 chairs a bright yellow.  These are
placed on the brick patio just off the deck.  Also painted 2 chairs for the
porch or excuse me, veranda, a bright yellow also.  The porch swing will go
on Thursday.  BTW, I was recently part of a discussion  on porch vs veranda.
Speaking as knowledgable gardeners, they said if a porch is covered it is a
veranda.  What do you think?
    Also, added a vertical dimension to the east side garden.  I used a 8"
hollow metal column purchased at Menards, cut it into 2 unequal pcs and
them over wooden posts anchored in the ground.  The post will add stability.
will paint them cobalt blue.  The top of each have a squared flat top where
will place hi glazed varigated cobalt blue planted containers.
    I need to get some sleep tonight otherwise 8 hrs on cement at the
greenhouse will make a long day tomarrow.
    Good night, Ceres
