Cut once. I’m serious about measuring before I make a hole or a cut. There is no “eyeball.”
Now that it’s early January, I finally hung my two baskets of spider plants outside. I bought the planters last June or July. But it was too hot to hang them in even the partial sun. And too dry if I wasn’t home to water them. And then the paper wasps built a nest near the place I wanted to install plant hooks. And then it was too cold. Finally, at last, the stars have aligned and it’s cool (but not too cool) and damp and the wasps are dead and I drilled the damn holes and hung the plants. It was quite a production and I hope it doesn’t freeze while I’m out of town.

You’d think, after the long story about my plants, that I’d have a picture of them. Nope. Instead, here is a picture of me using Jackson as a pillow while I finished my Outlander binge. (Same day, but a different hat.)
I hope to have pictures of the patio, including the hanging spider plants, in a few weeks. Right now, my yard looks like shite. But one of my New Year resolutions is to fill up the yard waste container every 2 weeks (when it is collected), so that will prompt me to be out there pruning and weeding and making it presentable. And, yes, I filled it up for Monday’s collection. I’m off to a great start in 2018 (now that the flu is over)!
