HELP too many Iries-I need a 12 step program-quick!!!!!
Today the weather finally broke!! Low 80's-woo-who! The humidity will be giving me a break for a few days. So I had to get outside and tackle the Iris bed that has been bothering me for some time now! This is where my new Greenhouse is going so I had to dig up over 100 plus Iries to make room over there to put the greenhouse in the full sun. And I'm sharing photos of all the Iries I dug out and laid out to dry for a few days. I will wash them today in bleach and water and cut back the leaves to about 6" before I replant them. I had a hard time letting go of some, but I just had to. I separated the babies and put them in my "Share Bucket", there is over 50 babies in there. I can not for the life of me throw any of these away because I'm not sure which one is which. Some are labeled but most are not. I had my trusty magic marker to write on the leaves of the ones I knew. I am going to scream trying to find places for all of these, but I will do it...if it kills me:)
I feel like one of the persons on the "Hoarder" shows. I just can't part with these, it was hard enough to have that share bucket. I wished some of you were closer I could share. I am an 'IRIS ADDICT" and I need a 12 step program. Maybe I need one of these anyway-big smile. Needless to say the greenhouse isn't going to be put up today because the 'MUSCLE" went golfing. And I know the "MUSCLE" isn't going to feel like dealing with it when he returns!!! Too bad I need 2 people for this project or it would have been done by now!!
