Bulb Life: From Robert’s Eyes

A crowded mass of roots from a packed pot of Crinum ‘Summer Nocturne’ Breaking up the pots of bulbs proved harder than usual. These bulbs were so large and had so many babies (offsets or bulblets is probably a better term) on each bulb, that I spent about 15 minutes per pot. Some of them are trying to bloom, but they’ll now have to wait until they reach their new homes.

About to break up more pots but what I can’t get done will travel up to the farm with me today on a trailer.

Rebecca spent the day preparing the goods to move into the cabin.
We had some exchanges, returns, etc. but we did end up with a nice mixer that we are both very excited about. Reminds me of the one my mom had in our house for over 20 years.

Robert, her younger brother helped, and took charge of the camera as well.  I present to you, “Bulb Life: From Robert’s Eyes.”
