    What's your current pool temp?

    96 for our evening swim yesterday after the husband and teen (and her friends) cranked up the heater up tp "spa" apparently 🤪 - way too warm, kind of gross. I turned off the heater at 6pm last night and it's down to 84 this morning. If it wasn't so cool and windy out right now, I'd hop in.

    What does your pool paradise look like?

    Thanks, I'm looking forward to them too! 🤪 Ugh, we're still a month out, and I'm SO TIRED of the mess we still have. We were hoping to keep the pool open for one last gathering once the yard was done, but if it the temps trend the way they've been going, we'll be closed before the landscaper...

    Official 2019 BBQ, Smoking, Grilling, Baking and Beer thread

    Yes, but they still had the beer aftertaste, so I stayed a wine cooler girl. ☺ Everyone here is seriously making me rethink the whole "leave the grilling to the husband" thing. I just might have to figure some of this out, because your meals look awesome! 😍

    Oops, missed that, thank you - it's beautiful! It looks a bit like the bluestone pics our landscaper sent over.

    What does your pool paradise look like?

    Your plants are GORGEOUS and make me wish I lived in a warmer climate! :love: Our paradise, aka "post pool install landscaping," is scheduled for late Sept/early Oct, but it will be a north woods look, so not at all tropical. It's what we decided to do instead of buying out our family's cabin...

    Splitting plants is a good thing

    We have a plastic liner, most of the weeds come from trees dropping seeds/fruit or squirrels/wind carrying things in. It's growing in to the mulch, not coming up from under it. Ugh. We didn't put the liner behind the garage and now have a whole "garden" (including trees and corn) there that we...

    Splitting plants is a good thing

    Brilliant! Maybe that's what we need to do to make our trees look neat and tidy again? Keeping up with the mulch, weeds, and grass growing over the edging seems never ending.

    Splitting plants is a good thing

    Wow, those are impressive! I have 7 year old Happy Returns daylilies in the front yard that need splitting, but I haven't done it because it seems scary. Maybe this is the year? When the pool landscaping gets underway I'll send some back there. Also, I didn't know they spread, but they are...

    What does your pool paradise look like?

    Oh these are all beautiful! We managed to at least clean up our install "war-zone" by the end of the summer, but we didn't do anything beyond drainage improvements and sprinkler system repairs before the snow hit. I'm looking forward to a full overhaul of our backyard space this spring - plants...

    We filled ours just over a week ago and are finally up to ... 72. We're really looking forward to getting the heater hooked up.
