Glazing glazing glazing
This past week saw the reincarnation of our Lime glaze. For the past year or so, it has been finicky. Some days it is willing to lay down a nice clean layer. Other times it decides that it wants to crawl. NOT this batch. This batch of Lime is downright sweet. It goes on nice and thick and comes out silky and kind of juicy. Go figure.
So today and yesterday were all about glazing. Even with stuff to trim, glazing takes priority. With the humidity at 100% I am not terribly worried about losing any pots to drying out. On the other hand, once I get things messy with all my glazing paraphernalia, the last thing I want to do is clean up. Once we finish a BIG round of glazing, I like to bring in the garden hose and completely saturate the floor. Flood it with enough water to have a half inch of standing water. Then we wet vacuum it all out. Helps keep the dust down and also helps moderate the temperature a bit.
