How is it mid-October already? It's been a ferociously busy four weeks, full of PTA volunteering, scouting, camping, a monumental birthday, and the weekly rhythms of cycling and gardening. I can't really call it gardening though, more like just getting the bare minimum done before the season passes. Throughout it all, I've had the weekly pleasure of unwrapping new hypertufa troughs that I cast over four or five consecutive weekends through August and September. I let them cure for four weeks, wrapped in plastic and stashed under the deck, like some weird, slow bread oven.
I still get a little thrill of satisfaction when I unwrap something that I made a month earlier.
Some of the new troughs are sold already, but about a dozen remain up for grabs. Let me know if you need one.
