My husband and I have decided to consider becoming weather forecasters post-retirement. I say this because –
- we FINISHED the demolition of the 2nd failed brick planter, AND
- we also put a tarp over my cement mixer behind the shop that we use to mix Mel’s Mix (the special soil replacement ingredients we use in our raised bed square foot planters
Because of these two things, we can practically assure everyone that the 40% chance we had of rain tomorrow morning is no longer applicable.
If we HADN’T finished and the soil wasn’t covered up, we would have had a deluge. We have proved this several times before in the 30+ years we’ve lived here. :0)
I’m thinking of calling our local weather guys and girls and letting them know there should be a change in the forecast….
Here is the 2nd 8 foot x 1-1/2 foot demolished-waiting-for-spring-for-us-to-rebuild-the-planter.
We did the work today in record time because the plant roots remaining weren’t completely root-bound and also we learned the best tools to use and techniques on the FIRST failed planter we demolished.
I hope the other people who live in our area weren’t depending on it raining tomorrow…. :0)
