Judi, Judi, with a big booty - NO!
Judi, Judi, oh so moody - NO!
Judi, Judi, you have cooties - Um, NO!
I can't come up with anything. I am the least likely person to be a gardener. I like plants but don't really know a ton about them. I am learning to like worms but don't care too much for the other critters that try to eat my plants. I like the whole start from seeds thing. I like the process of it all.
I asked M the other day if she enjoyed it. No, not really. But I like seeing how excited you get when something grows. That's fun. I'll take that.
So, what am I growing? And where? I have a tiny front yard that just got tinier. I now have 4 large garden boxes. The picture only shows three but I just inherited one from a neighbor that's the biggest of all! Some plants I started from seeds (thank you friends who bring me toilet paper rolls for seed sprouting). Some I bought. And some I got on freecycle (excellent resource!).
That little flower will hopefully be a pepper one day.
This pretty little thing will be peas.
basil - both from seed and purchased
rosemary - both from seed and purchased
all sorts of peppers
lettuce - yummy kinds and others
tomatoes (various kinds)
I think I'm missing something. Oh! Eggplant. Just one of those.
Hopefully, these little flowers will grow into cucumbers. Or a squash - I forget which.
This little purple flower will hopefully become some sort of edible eggplant (even though I don't actually like eggplant).
I have a compost bin out back - I've had it for years. I'm lazy about it. Sometimes I remember to put stuff in it, sometimes I don't. Sometimes I water it, mostly I don't. But when I find worms, they go in it. Worm poop is golden.
This year I opened the lid to find a surprise. Things were growing in it. There are potatoes - I'm not touching those because I haven't a clue on how to grow those. There are pumpkin seeds. I transplanted those so we'll see if those work. I have mystery plants growing (they didn't transplant so well). And there are at least 5 tomatoes growing around the compost. I can figure out how it happened but it was still surprising.
I like growing things. I like growing things that don't talk back. I like little flowers that greet me daily, almost happy to see me. I am a reluctant (and completely clueless) farmer. Whodathunk?
