After the summer of 2010, beloved husband and I decided we would beat the heat by returning to Michigan for the month of July this year. (Yet one more of our plans that didn’t work out as expected. See: Heat Wave of 2011 hits the Midwest)
Before leaving I found a foster family for my herb pots, and attempted to double checked the trickle system in our back yard. Stay tuned for a post on how that is really accomplished. Clearly, I haven’t a clue.
We returned in early August. The short hand version of what we returned to, is this: Several plants, fried beyond recognition; one tree on the watch list; and several herbs MIA.
Now the question becomes…When, if at all, do I start replacing the deceased?
