Curing time......

Batch #3 is now curing and should be coming along just fine as we've had lot's and lot's of rain. Since these tufa pots call for slow cure this works great. I tend to get a little anxious and want to get to them and just plant them up. Not really sure what will happen to these but I see lot's of "gifts" in their future. Actually, a couple of these have been promised and hope they like them.
We've tried a new recipe for these and I really like the look and the texture.
Here is our new recipe:
  • 1 part Portland Cement
  • 1 part Peatmoss
  • 1 part Pearlite
  • a little under 1 part water.
Our first recipe did not include the pearlite but used vermiculite. I'm thinking that this will also be a bit lighter in weight.


Well......now if the sun ever comes out we can see how they measure up.

  4. Then be sure to let your cake set for a few hours.
    Many baked goods also do well when served cold or frozen, making them perfect
    to help you cope with and enjoy the summer. Then having your cake decorator create a cake with
    bold lines, designs, and colors is the way to go.

  6. As pointed out before each these varieties of blinds are very
    quick to clean also. A ceiling fan with a light kit
    is often a practical decision, since it provides both light and air circulation.
    Specialized, common, contemporary, ready-made curtains are currently.

  7. Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this website? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers
    and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
