Pedulum glazing

Pendulum glazing - very inventive, fun technique.

Today was a gardening marathon - first at our son and daughter-in-laws garden, turning over and amending part of a raised bed  to plant kale and cauliflower, pulling some weeds and doing hand watering, and then the rest of the day in our back yard.

I'm exhausted and sore, but most of my flower pots, other than those in the shade are cleaned out and planted except for a few more annuals I need to get for them. I'm off tomorrow to buy a couple of more planters, more veggie starts and hopefully some annuals for shade. If they have all the annuals in stock, I should be finished with all my early planting at our house by the end of the week. There will still be some cold sensitive veggies and herbs like  basil, peppers, eggplant and tomatoes to plant; but evenings have to get a wee bit warmer before I plant those. We're in a very warm spell right now but in few days temperatures will be down to the low 60's during the day and high 30's low 40's at night. The weather this year has certainly been a challenge at times. It's definitely been keeping us on our toes.

Well, that's it for today. The tomato plants are in for the night and so am I.


  1. Omg now I HAVE to give that pendulum glazing a try! Thank you for sharing that.

    1. Momma always said pendulum glazing is like a box of chocolates.

  2. In that you will always be left with the Turkish Delight and the Coffee Creme and yet fat Auntie Edna will find a way to sneak the Cherry Liqueur out of the second layer before the first layer is finished?
