For those of you wondering about what star pattern I used, here are my measurements. You can take it from here and when you’re finished, send me a picture. Yes, Connie and I can sew quite fast – we learned from necessity years ago.
I always think it’s sad to move the plants back inside to wait out the winter.
Each plant is washed and all debris removed from leaves and dirt and then I spray for bugs before the plant comes inside. This is what I spray them with – any brand will do.
Here is a succulent that has flourished outside this summer but many leaves get knocked off whenever a cat, dog or goat runs into it.
Here are the leaves that have fallen on the ground. Look carefully – they’re already growing!
See the little cluster of leaves at the end? Lay these leaves on top of the soil in a pot, don’t water them and watch what happens.
I’ll show this pot to you again in a couple weeks.
Replacing all the succulents and cacti outside will be pumpkins from the garden. Here was our most recent peak at the vines.
Yes, these are the same vines that were shredded and flattened by the hailstorm in July – what a lovely surprise Reed and I had when we began to snoop around the pumpkin patch.
Look at this beautiful “cheese wheel” pumpkin!
And this poor guy grew into the fence!
