Hello, friends! I learned something about clay pots recently. My daughter is doing a science fair experiment that involves giving bean plants varying amounts of salt water to see what effect it has. I'm not sure how she chose the numbers she did, but there's a comical amount of salt involved. For the saltier of the two experimental treatments, we couldn't get the salt to fully dissolve.

But what I learned is that clay pots are not impermeable. As it turns out, over time, the salt water will seep through and deposit on the outside of the pot. Furthermore, soil that has a thriving plant absorbs more water than soil that has dying plants. So if you're not careful, you overflow the tray and salt water flows down into the crate where you have things like your check book, an old picture of your mom, and various writing utensils. Oops.

Thankfully, this newsletter is not nearly as salty!

Now you see me!
