It rained so much for the first part of the month that half our yard was two inches deep in water. The ground was so sodden it couldn't absorb another molecule of water. Fortunately most of my garden areas are raised enough so they didn't flood. Poor Proge who has been trying to build a short stone walk had most of his foundation bed washes out!
No I did not take any pictures of all the water!
The benefit is that we are living in a jungle!
The drawback is that we have mosquitoes the size of dive bombers!
I let my clay recycling get away from me. I generally always have some drying so I can continue working in a smooth cycle. Not so much this month. Now I have clay drying.....and drying....and drying. We're trying to figure out a way to set up a hot box that will allow allow air circulation without drying the surfaces of the clay too much. Any suggestions?
All this is because I am bound and possessed to use all the terra cotta clay I have before buying more!
This is too late to post on Mud Colony, but I did do a post on Thursday about Rose Cabat. Everyone should pop over take a look at what is going on in clay this week.
Have a great, somewhat dryer, week and, as always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*
