Boy, looks like another overcast and windy day.
Still I need some miles so I'm gonna try and get out later.
This morning though, I did a surprise inspection on the Cactus Corps.
Something very strange is going on:
I got some seriously leaning towers of cactus!
Sort of looking like a pokey cucumber.
Then there is the one that's going sort of horizontal:
I have no idea what's going on there!
I mean it was leaning at first, now it looks like it's starting to head back into the ground!
Then there's this planetoid looking one:
I don't know how it stays upright as the part that enters the soil is very small.
All those were plant place bought so I have no clue as to what species they are. I suppose I should check again and try to identify them now that they are larger.
Still with the GAGILLION types of cactus out there in Cactusland it's a bit difficult.
The plebes are doing okay, we haven't had an attack in a while:
Seems like those are the ones who are going to make it.
There a couple that have risen above the rest, the platoon leaders:
Time for a transplant I think, I've already got some bigger plastic pots.
The Saguaro is going great!
Time to separate them into individual pots, something I'll work on today if the weather doesn't break.
I think I'm going to make some little cactus pots as these things won't get any larger for like years, so I won't have to keep changing out the planters.
It's strange for they seem to be doing better than some of the others:
I can't imagine anything growing any slower than the Saguaro, so maybe I need me some miracle cactus juice or some nitrates or something.
I'll try and check the plant place later.
For now, I need to get going and make more planters!
Okay, there's only like fourteen hours or so to get your photos in for the Mug Giveaway No.1.
Which reminds me, I gotta make more mugs too.
There's also that pesky thingy I'm working on for the show that doesn't seem to be inspiring me.
Maybe something will come to me.
