2000 new olive cuttings arrived today so after a wound and a overnight soak in the hormone hot tub here they will get a dip in hormodin and get placed in the fresh perlite beds.

How are Paul and Olive cuttings alike? They both like to drink hormodin and get placed in a fresh perlite bed.

:blink: is this thing on?

the idea of paul getting "rooted" over 20 days in perlite is very very very disturbing

Oh Ta'ad. Come out, come out, wheverer you are.

OK, that was the nice version.

It has been a month, get your butt in gear soldier, and let's get some posts out here, mister.

That was the down to business version.

Don't make me go to the next step.

maybe I take some pictures at the show, but prolly not because I always feel sorta weird wondering around with a camera in the convention center.

plus some of the cohorts have strict no photographic evidence policy. Plus still fixing a few things round the old rancho

we have been hammered with rain lately so we decided to use the "down time" to do some stuff around the house and farm, here is a shed/shade being framed up over the kiddee pool, I have fought against a real pool for years, so this was the compromise, now that step one to the outdoor kitchen is in place(dont hold your breathe for step 2 anytime soon)this pool gets taken down in 2 months for the "winter" :blink: ...The blue tarp on the pool is an old cotton module tarp we used to keep the slag from burning holes in the pool while welding up the purlins!!

YUP :) , I like the idea of a pool, but not until the baby is at least 5 or 6 years old, I am morbid afraid that theyll drown, its bad enough with the pond in back!!

hahahhahhaha yeah, NO, dueling banjos is not required...Las Mananitas however is!!

canoeing on my river is not advisable unles the canoe is armor plated with forward and rear mounted 30 cal's!

I am by no means a croton expert, but they seem to do better for me in a filtered light/shade environment, and I think some humiditiy is going to go a long way towards them doing well, you may have to mist them a little?!?!?!?

that is exactly where the only ones that have survived are--in filtered light.i water alot around them but not really directly--

seems to stop them from having that fatal "crash" in which they suddenly drop all their leaves :rage:
