Re: Re: Busy day

Oh Theresa that just sounds lovely! Sounds like your solarizing went
well. I know people do it here w/ great success! Would love to see a
picture of your latest project once it grows in a bit! And Jim - child,
it sounds like you are working entirely too hard - mercy! This was
probably our last nice weekend for a while, so I made good use of it
also. Didn't do as much as you did though!

Subject: Re: [CHAT] Busy day

So-  yesterday was my busy day outside.  I ripped out the remnants of 
the tomatos and planted my snow and snap peas.  The spot I was 
solarizing I hope got cooked enough.  The plastic on top of the earth 
has started disintegrating.  I'm going to remove it and cover that whole 
bed with clear plastic over the winter and into spring until it's time 
to plant something else. 
I also bought a water trough (like a horse would drink out of- 2x4x2 
foot size), drilled holes in the bottom and set it on bricks, and filled 
it with soil.  It is outside the window of the room my husband uses as 
an office at home.  He used to only have a view of the fence about 5 
feet from the window and the neighbors house beyond that- not too 
exciting.  It is on the north side of the house.   I got a lattice panel 
and attached to the top of the fence, and filled the trough with ferns, 
pansies, cyclemen, a couple of mini-mums, and a white bower vine, and an 
Alba (sauvolens) rose (a climber that does well in shade).  So, now he 
has some color and the rose and bower vine should make a nice green 
backdrop once they grow more.
