Anyways, I've been having fun with concrete, making plant markers for the garden. Yes, I'm a dork and an obsessive labeler. I got this set over a year ago, thinking I would have tons of time after my dissertation was done - but the kitchen and other projects kind of took over.
We dug it out last weekend along with the bag of concrete that's been sitting there, waiting, in the garage, et voila! concrete plant tags. Mmmm, tomato, garlic, rosemary. And our tomatoes won't have salmonella.
Actually, not quite voila because it took me a while to get the consistency right. It's not like thinset, and it gets wetter as it sits so you really have to mix it fairly dry. But I love them! The whole kit was very easy to use and was inexpensive. Highly recommended. They have it at Lee Valley. I still have a bunch more to make - not that I'm complaining - it's a great stress reliever, like working with clay.
