It's time for a "before" and "after" post. You may recall the chaos on my deck in early May. Right now, everything looks pretty good. It's been pretty warm in northern Virginia lately so I give my plants a good soaking very early in the morning. And then in the evening, I give the smaller pots a second drink. I have only had one casualty since my initial planting, some new kind of fern that was supposed to be able to tolerate full sun--I really should have known better. Overall though, I'm very pleased with how it has all turned out. See below.
