The screened porch was built about 13 years ago and it was time to re-screen it. There were holes in the old screen from birds flying into it and it was looking very tired and worn. I worked just ahead of the carpenter vacuuming, brushing dust and cobwebs and then scrubbing each section. Oh, what an exhausting job! I’m sitting down right now but not sure I’ll be able to get up again – ha!
Do you see those boards at an angle? Can you imagine how hard it is to clean at the very bottom where there’s no space? Not sure I can explain – it would take a putty knife and a wet rag to clean there. When I asked him a couple years ago why he didn’t just put them in straight up and down he said he thought the angle effect was attractive. Of course he did but he never once considered how hard it would be to clean. Ugh.

My catalog is very old and I remember I ordered online so I’ll have to go online to get correct names of the pumpkins. That’s for tomorrow.
