On Tuesday! I meant to prep this on Sunday night, but I was so tired. I figured I’d do it Monday morning. But then there was this weird thing going on in the sky so a friend and I got our kids together so we could have an “eclipse party.” That was so fun! And of course, there was no blogging to be had.
So here I am on Tuesday trying to catch up, on so many things! Maybe you are too. 🙂
Things are definitely looking peaked in the garden now. This part of the season always makes me a bit sad, because everything’s “glory days” are over, pretty much, and I know it’s just a matter of time until the first frost. Autumn officially starts in about a month, can you believe it?
The new watering system will work out okay, I’m thinking, once I have enough bottles. I’m also going to need some more spikes. Apparently I had more pots than I realized when I ordered them. D’oh! And then I decided to count my “long pots” as two, because I realized that the spikes wouldn’t reach from one end of the pot to the other, so I’ll put one on each end.
I have to say, I think I’m really going to like watering this way. Sure, filling up all the individual bottles is a bit of a pain (that’s my fault for having so many pots, lol) but having the cart sure beats the heck out of trying to carry that big watering can! Trying to lift that heavy thing to water the pots that are high gets to be really tiring. Plus, with the bottles, I know just how much water each pot is getting.
And that’s how my garden bloomed this week. How’s yours coming along?
