The broken off stem from the jade plant has been sitting in water for quite some time. Monday was the day to cut it up and put the sprouts into soil. I really have never done this before but I am assuming the exposed roots means they have to be in the soil and all other things can be cut away from the source plant.
Tuesday's project was to take a bunch of small violet starts and separate them. I found that there were four of them growing all in one pot. I hope I can keep them all going now. They each had good root systems. It is hard to believe that they were all crowded in the one container.
My wife and I were both out shooting photos. I am getting more photos than I can share. The dandelions and wild violets are starting to bloom. Tulips are looking better but most of them have returned to yellow rather than be their original color. The iris is looking really good growth wise and I think a little more rain would help them along.
I am in the "at risk" room today, called the Success Center. I assist and nag to get students to get their work done. The morning has gone well and students do seem to be cooperating well. I appreciate your stopping by today.
