I had been making some progress on some longer posts (a product review, an Anthurium update, a series of posts about bad houseplant advice, etc.) last week, and then there was a minor family crisis, followed by what appears to be a summer cold. So now I'm spending like five hours a day blowing my nose.1
At least it isn't the flu, I suppose.
The point being that even though new stuff is happening here with the plants again, and I have other things to write about besides, there will be continued delays before you actually start seeing any of that.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to blow my nose again.
