  • Talking about African violets...the starts you gave me are growing a little. Yay! Keeping my fingers crossed.

  • They grow slow,especially when we have such great hopes. In winter especially, water carefully.

    I have other V that need to be re-worked so I will probably start some new ones soon.

  • For those who know I had a schuling conflict on Friday, I am now clear to be there so I will be bringing some of those jade plant division and may make cuttings of aloe, two decorative begonias and another type of jade/succulent plant

  • Schuling translates to scheduling.

    Our dear, loving, adorable PITA has struck again. I came out wto days ago to find a trail of pitting mix going out the greenhouse door, found the pot and eventually the plants that were in the pot.

    Brought them back inside them back inside and found them on the floor again this morning. I did not have to yell, call PITA's name or do anything more than stand there looking at the mess to make PITA drop her head and exit the greenhouse.

    She KNOWS she did wrong but seems driven to do it again. Anyone with ideas? I take no pleasure from shouting or using a rubber hose on her bottom. On occasion I attach a log chain to her collar so she can not move around, but she is learning how to escape from that and it has not stopped her from her path of destruction.

    I made the mistake of chaining one of our strays to a dog house that did not move one time. She ran and snapped back at the end of the chain so hard that I was afraid she would break her neck. The log chain slows her down but does not come to a sudden stop.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.
