We did go out to eat at the Mexican restaurant close to our home last night. Pricy, but it seems that you can’t get out of any restaurant for under $30 these days. The food was very good though. Plus atmosphere.
I spent 1:35 minutes outside today. Damit got spooked by something, maybe a salamander..He insisted that something was “right there!”, but I overturned everything and didn’t find his spook. That event exhausted him. He’s in bed now.
I made my own potting mix. I used 4 parts vermiculite, 8 parts cheap soil, 2 parts good soil, 4 parts mushroom mulch. The mix turned out good. I keep it in a Rubbermaid® trash can. It survives living outdoors.
Planting the cannas was tricky. I’m not good at centering plants during transplant. I was able to get a bunch of “babies” off of the root stalks – I planted a bunch of those in a couple of pots. It was overwhelming, so I’m soaking the rest in water, to plant directly into soil tomorrow. I’ll walk around tonight and see if I can find a suitable place.
I’ll think about planting these tomorrow..The spiky succulent, the spiny succulent and popcorn tree seeds.
As promised, I filled a rodent hole (at the “New Picnic Area” with dog poop and dog hair.
