I’m going to need some bricks
This is my first attempt at solarizing. I chose to make a bed by the back fence, to screen it. It’s going to be hard to keep the dogs out of the process. Actually, now that I look at it I’d like to extend that bed out so that the fig tree is part of it. Anyway, I plan on preparing the bed in time for the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center plant sale in October– for once! Planning before buying plants!
Obama’s speech last night was heartening. I actually feel optimistic about politics for once. I am feeling less optimistic about my job search. I had two interviews this week, and if one of them comes through that will be great. Otherwise, I’m accepting the lab job I was offered in July if they’ll still have me. After two years of applying for jobs, I’m done. Over it. I can’t take any more anxiety over finding a “career” job. I’m so worn out!
