|Cracked netted skin...what??? How did this happen?|
I looked all the places I thought would have the answers...Master Gardener sites...University pages...etc and with no luck. Finally I asked my good pals at the Gardenaholics Anonymous group on Facebook and of course they new exactly what it was explained what happened. Honestly, it is a little frustrating for me when I can't find my answers on line when I do a search on my own...but that is why I keep my gardening pals close at hand...they are such a wealth of information. (Thanks everybody!...You know who you are!)
It doesn't help that I have two plants in a container that I KNEW was going to be a challenge to keep watered. I made my own grief on this one. Well...as my momma always said, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." So now I am going to have to stay on top of the watering or figure out a way to get it planted in the ground without setting it back. I think I'll cut my losses and just keep the hose primed. Now if I can just remember to use it.
