So.  No put up of any actual import.  I’m a grimy mess – my associates introduced a ginormous trencher in to run the ability traces into the backyard (and set it up for when the again porch is constructed)… I needed to transfer lilies in 90F warmth (in case you ever should do one thing like that on the Incorrect Season, right here’s the trick:  dig a BIG gap.  Huge.  I needed to transfer 4, so every dig was about 3 occasions the diameter of the plant.  That method the plant actually doesn’t discover the transfer.  )  My nails are destroyed.  I’m a grimy mess – did I already say that?

And I received nuthin’.

They’re additionally rewiring the brand new breaker panel in my home.

All for supplies…and meals.
