Hypertufa Planters 5/2010

Here is my hyperytufa collection I made this month. The lighter colored ones were made 3 weeks ago and are further along in the curing process. The darker ones were just formed 3 days ago. I used a variety of bowls, boxes and wicker baskets as molds.

What do I do with this empty space

"A raised bed, with trellis against the wall, might work. You could add several things in a small space, with a nice flower vine, or whatever ya want on the trellis."

"Beautiful Stacy. I would be sitting outside all day. When I had my house we had multiple grape arbors that were well over a hundred feet long and very old. The smell they gave off when the grapes were ripe was just wonderful. Always made jelly and…"

Yard Sale Treasures

Posted on April 24, 2010 at 9:09pm 2 Comments

Just hit some awesome yard sales today. Found some cool containers and baskets to use for hypertufa molds, an antique table for my deck and also some great garden tools at an estate sale. For $3.00 I found a pair of heavy brass swans that have hollow bodies (for planting) they will look great in the garden when they get their natural patina coloring.

new potting shed plans

Posted on April 22, 2010 at 9:16pm 0 Comments

Trying to design a new shed with the hubby. I think we are going to build a board and batten shed, 12x16 with a 5' overhanging roof on one of the long sides, under which I will have a potting shed area 5x16 with a workbench and shelf over. I want to wall in the long exterior wall of potting shed area with lattice and 1/2 of the end walls as well to hide the bench and shelf, leaving a 3ft wide doorway at the entry end open and at the other end just the top 1/2 open so my work bench can wrap… Continue

Hypertufa Planters & other concrete projects

Posted on April 9, 2010 at 7:34pm 2 Comments

I recently attended a gardeners show where I attended a seminar on making concrete fossil stones and hypertufa containers. hypertufa is a mix of quickcrete, sand, vermiculite and peat moss. It makes a concrete that looks worn and aged. Does anyone have any good ideas for interesting form materials? I did see the use of wicker baskets which looked kind of cool.

Hi Stacy - My clematis is blooming now - big purple blossoms - even though I had to cut a lot of it off. I've had it so long, I don't remember where I got it - before Home Depot and Lowe's came to Oneonta! Do I pass you on the way to Albany?

Sampson is about 20 minutes down the east side of our lake- Seneca. It's a wonderplace and I hope you enjoy! The Finger Lakes are unbeatable.

I love nasturtiums! Your picture, did you take that this year? I bought some from a nursery, I stated some from seed indoors, and I threw some seeds into the ground and wouldn't you know the plants that are flourishing are the ones that were started from seed outdoors! Lesson learned.
