Note to Sophie and the Good Old Days Bunch

Nell JeanFebruary 17, 2014

Sophie, there's a post called 'Anybody on here from say 10 years ago' if you scroll down. I was the last to comment on it. Nonacook, Bright199, seamommy, jeaninwa, gram_bh, beachplant were heard from. I'm know I left off some familiar members. .

Some others who were here are on Facebook or still blogging. It's about time to drag out some junk and go outdoors. I want to make hypertufa containers.

Y'all don't miss the 5" ceramic cache pots at $Tree. I bought yellow and green last year and wished I had more. They brought them back.

Nice, like the cactus too! Does it have a hoe in bottom for drainage? TFS Jan

These pots do not have a hole in the bottom for drainage. I pot everything in those little plastic pots that are 6/$1 using them as a liner. When I water, I remove the inner pot and let it drain before replacing. A handful of pebbles in the bottom of the outer pot brings the inner pot even with the rim and helps drainage, too.

The smaller 10/$1 plastic pots are handy for rooting things or starting one big seed like Pride of Barbados or Castor Bean. If I'm doing plants with shallow roots, I recycle yogurt containers.

Thanks, FE! I was just telling DH we need to make some tufa stuff. I am so ready for winter to be over once and for all. Yesterday and today, temps have been nice, but dare I believe the arcticness won't return? :p

Hey, y'all! A reunion would be great!

Nona, I don't get out curb shopping nearly as much as I did back then. Sure miss my truck. And I still kick myself over that pink piano I had to pass up.

BTW, I was spring cleaning and came upon the junk train notebook I was supposed to send you. Never trust a man to run your errands. ;)

With mom's passing it's been hard to get motivated. And we are renting now but I have been buying parts to make some plate flowers. Just doing a search to see if everyone is still using GE Silicone ll. Like those pots.

I love Dollar tree, stopped this week and picked up 14 pairs of flip-flops to make door wreaths for our community garden plant swap. 7 pairs per wreath. I tried them without a back but they are too floppy so gluing them on straw wreaths salvaged from the resale shop trash pile.

Tally HO!

I've been on here several years, but not as long as ten. I lurk more than I post. Don't know why. I come here almost every day to see what's going on. I've been very busy making and selling garden art flowers, solar lights and other garden items. Also have had 3 surgeries in the last year so that has taken a toll on my energy.

I think I started coming in to GWGJ about 2000 when I got my first computer. I am sure I had a different name. Lost my password and had to change. Might have been Tucker. I do not remember. I remember Jean in Wa and Wonder where Wendy is Do you all remember the Blue Moon night we all did some thing special and had an online party? I think it was 2004 or 2005. I had so many picture of stuff we all did back then but lost most in a computer crash. I have learned to back up.

Wendy is still in the PNW, precious as ever. Every full moon I think about the Blue Moon party.

Every now and then I run across a picture from the mid-2000s someplace that I seldom go any more. I don't know why I didn't save more or at least save them where I could find them again.

The server where I put everybody's recipes finally dropped me off. I salvaged some of it, including one of Wendy's recipes.

Hiya! I was here years ago, had so much fun and inspiration with everyone ;) I'm happy to say that GE SILICONE 2 is the BEST! Every bit of stuff I glued with it out in the yard is still there (more than 10 years!!).... most of the metal, wood (like chairs) are gone. I popped in because I have a bare spot and needed inspiration. It's so cool to see this post right up front! ~~~~waves~~~~~
