    I’m here in Salem now, and the city said even/odd days for a while. It’s just bone dry here too.

    Had a day of no rain and cool temps (80s), so got some yardwork done. Raining coming in later today.

    Got a new 600lb "planter" for the corner of my property. I will need cactus propagation tips. IMG_20180728_002846_083.jpeg

    Cacti need high-drainage soil, like sand or a mix of sand and dirt. Do you have pads of the type of cactus you want to grow? Or do you have a plant you can just plop in there? If you plan on having multiple cacti in the "planter", space them out evenly.

    Planning this all from scratch. I'm going to have to measure the hole, buy some soil, find some pads....

    Good morning! Finally got rain yesterday afternoon. It’s been 3 weeks of nothing but high 90s. My grass was crunchy [emoji43]. My plants were all droopy and burnt from hot sun and no clouds, even though I watered them almost every day at dark. I bet they perk up today. It’s cloudy now so hopefully we will get showers for the next few days to saturate the ground!

    I have cactus, and you are welcome to come and get some pads or I can give you several California Golden Barrels planted in small pots but are too big for them. They need more room and I am too weak to try and replant them. I have some pads that have bloomed and are ready to separate from the main plant. Unfortunately, I have no license plate and am too sick to drive my IROC down to you. I am not contagious and don't do much, so call and you are welcome to come any day...
    If you want.

    I'll take you up on that. I can't commit 100% but I think I will be up there on the 4th-ish. If you need a little help re-potting some things you want to keep see if you can round up some pots and I can try to help. I'll just need a supervisor since I'm a plant murderer. I'll let you know when I know more!

    use good potting soil, I like Super Soil. It doesn't have additives. I'd put half soil and half clean sand. I have lots of pots and lots of plants, don't want to replant any of them, thanks anyway....***-***-****. I am asking the Forum as a whole to not call me, remember I am a sick and semi hostile old lady. My number is for one person only. I'd send it to her privately but my computer is only half working. Sorry to be so direct

    Good morning! No rain expected and temps are going to be a bit hotter today, but only upper 80s. It's my weekend. Jungle here I come.

    We are still in the 90’s with humidity. There’s so much I want to do in the pens but I just can’t handle the heat.
    I bought 3 big bags of peat moss to mix in with my crappy dirt. I can’t even grow clover and dandelions.
    My husband has been in China about 4 weeks and I’m so ready for him to come home. He was home for about a week and had to return.
