We had sweet corn for dinner after looking for the dog's walking collar for nearly an hour. G finally found it under the rear passenger seat of my car. ???? Our daughter needed the collar when she took Riley for his afternoon walk. She called me at work (lunchtime) to discuss it's disappearance.
Work was great today. It was cool outside and I wore cropped pants instead of shorts and didn't sweat even once, all day. I had some great customers today: someone who wanted Montauk Daisies which I had, someone who wanted mint for Mohitos, a woman with a Bonsai that had dropped all it's leaves (overhead fan blowing on it) who asked if "we" could shape it so it looked bonsai-ish (Oh. My. Gosh. Yes!!!) when the leaves grew back, and last but not least a 55 year old Christmas cactus belonging to two sisters (it was their grandfather's) which I am going to dismember and repot on Monday. All this and still had time to read a gardening book and learn things. I always want to gain more knowledge for the questions people ask.
If your local greenhouse was having free classes this Fall what topics would interest you? Herbs, Forcing Indoor Bulbs, Repotting Houseplants (bring one in to work on in class), building a cold frame for the garden ....... any ideas out there? We always do Pumpkin Carving and Dividing Perennials.
My garden is in desperate need of watering. Tomorrow. And I have laundry to do and zucchini brownies to make (so very good) and, well, other stuff I can't think of right now. Oh, take a few good pictures for the posts. It's always good to have a few saved up. Another cool night for sleeping.
