No... we don't run a plant nursery!

At least that's what Karen tells the folks who stop to see if they can buy her propagated cuttings. It's that time of year, as we come slowly in to some more reliable and frequent rains, to get things ready to go in to the ground. What you see here are Oleander, Ixora and a lot of Bandolero (Agave). Karen puts these cuttings in a home-brew potting mix of equal parts of... sand, black soil and hardwood sawdust. Add some 14-14-14 fertilizer and some dry cow manure and water and sun. In a few weeks they are ready to plant.
