pkponder, the brug stalks

3 of them look like they are about to burst into root any time. One hasn't changed yet, Thank you!

Marti,
If it was the one marked white, it will be slower. Those pinks are amazingly hardy.

I always root them in water.

Marti, another thought...does the other cutting look wilted at all? If it does, cut another slice from the bottom. I cut those just before the swap and plunged them into water, then wrapped in the wet paper towel. It may not be uptaking the water.

No, it doesn't look wilted. It was the one with a few leaves on it. I took it out of the bag and don't remember which one it is.

Oh wait. I just saw the W written on it. It's probably starting too, just not as much as the others.

Hey Pam if you're interested, I found a good source of donkey manure yesterday. Its good for mulching brugs in the ground over winter. Shes a nurse and she lives between Springtown and Azle. I promised her I'd come and get a truckload soon. Cheryl

P.S. The nurse is not a donkey. She has donkeys.

LOL Cheryl!

I always like poo :-) I get cow poo from one friend and donkey poo from Carrie and mix it into my compost heap. I can sure use some if she has more than she wants. I'm going to Carrie's on Saturday and will get a few feed bags full, but a truckload...wow :-)

This lady is a radiology tech at my oncologists office. She does all my CT scans. So she and I were talking about gardening last week and she said she lives between Springtown and Azle and keeps a small herd of mini donkeys. I just had scope surgery on my left knee but soon as I'm back up I'm gonna call her and see how much poop she'll give me.

Sounds good Cheryl. I wasn't feeling well and missed out on going to Carrie's.

How is your knee doing after the scope surgery? Are you in much pain?
