Observations and ruminations on things happening in my garden and projects related to gardening.

Just when it looked like the heat was done for the year, back it comes; 103 today. Watered the yard and took the form off the concrete lamppost base I poured on Saturday; only one more left to go. Found some imitation slate roof tiles at the reuse-it center and am adding Sedona Red stain to give it more depth, as slate is rarely just one color. Once they're dry, I'll use construction adhesive to glue the pieces to the lamppost bases. Also started building a base for the laundry room sink I found at the reuse-it center; I'll use it to soak potted plants and will drain the excess water into a bucket so I don't waste water.
