The currants are finally planted. Which is a very good thing, as it appears the weakest plant is nearly dead, and the strongest plant has currant berries starting to form. What a range in the stock, and of its tolerance to the recommended storage method over last few weeks. I put together the additional soaker hose for the driveway woodland garden today before collapsing into a puddle. Significant rainfall from coastal storms is expected tomorrow so the patio containers may linger unfinished, but the end of summer preparations is near. The largest job still remains: cleaning the screened-in porch.
