OMG as Emily would say

I found another culprit in the garden saga. We'll call him "Kerry" for lack of another nice name. I had mentioned that the garden seemed dry all the time, and asked if it was getting enough water, he said he thought so. Ack...my fault for not clarifying what he thinks is enough. Apparently, he thought it was getting 30 min. every other day, which I don't think is enough, and I told him to bump it up to 45 min. every other day. It was 20 min. every other day. No wonder nothing is growing, and the dirt is bone dry.
I could cry. And maybe I should have seeing as how I found this out while I was weeding my evening away when I could have been putting my new stamps together. At least my tears would have watered my plants...

What a bummer! Is it too late to repair the damage? I'm sooooo not a gardener so I wouldn't know! Hope you got your stamps together anyway! Here's a {hug}!

Ugh poor plants!! We have had the heat but clouds so my tomatoes are suffering, I keep watering them cause they are dry, but I dont think they will produce much more without some sunlight! Hope yours is able to be saved!

Oh, and yes, you were one of the 3 I was talking about!! Hope you like it! I wanted to get the Mickey and Minnie keychain with them kissing with both your and Kerry's names but they told me only one name was allowed, Even when I said I would pay more they said it wouldnt fit. It really would have, they just need to write smaller!! And now that I see how they do the names, I might get one anyways and do it myself! We have a dremel!

I sure hope your garden starts producing stuff for you. All you work shouldn't be in vain. Hopefully more water will help. My garden is a lovely overgrown wilderness that surprisingly enough, makes for a good backdrop in photos LOL
