I have not had much time for blogging the past two days. I have been very busy at work getting caught up and when I get home I have to water, water, and more water. It has been in the 90's here--hot, muggy, miserable weather. We still have not had any rain (so keep doing the rain dances!). My container wall planters have been filling out nicely. These planters insist on at least 2 good waterings a day. Yesterday I did not water them before I went to work and they were sulking when I got home. Today I went out at 5:30 a.m. to water them and then again about 4 pm when I got home. In two days my grass has gone from decent to dry, brown, and crunchy. I hate when that happens. It drags down all the gardens. We have a well and do not water the grass for fear of something happening to the well (DH has the fear - I would take the risk).
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
