Last weekend we got two new pots for the deck, bringing us to saturation point for a balcony that is 16 feet long and 4 feet wide. The pots, a good deal from Home Depot, look like stone but are pure plastic and incredibly light.
Dabbling in some succulent rescue, I picked up an overgrown jade plant and cut off a bunch of its arms, which then languished in a tray for three weeks but did not die (this is called 'callusing'), which in my opinion makes succulents kind of creepy. That and the name. Succulent.
I stuck all of the bits and parts into one of the new pots. The mommy jade plant is already sprouting new arms. This may be my perfect plant - happiest when chopped up and denied water.
The white pot on the end is sown with arugula and micro greens. I don't know which are which and I don't have the heart to harvest the micros.
And here is our fountain, built by Tom. You'll never guess what it was in its former life.
