New Potting Bench!!!

Apr 23, 2014

Can She Save the Ferox?

We have had the weirdest weather here lately.  And I am going to say that this is the main reason why I may lose my large Aloe Ferox.  I did make a pretty big mistake when I tried to save it but I don't think it is the main reason for it's pr...

A Rant, A Plea and My Big Blue Pot

First of all, WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THIS CRAZY WEATHER!  Whew that actually felt good to type.  First we get an unseasonable cold spell here in California and now it just won't rain!  I really don't like the rain but at this point I would take weeks of it.  We are being threatened...
