Gardening Wisdom.


Gardening is a kind of disease. It infects you, you cannot escape it. When you go visiting, your eyes rove about the garden; you interrupt the serious cocktail drinking because of an irresistible impulse to get up and pull a weed.
- Lewis Gannit

Apparently I'm diseased, then.
I mowed the lawn and watered my plants, and pulled a few weeds, and ditched two things of yard waste, and gave two plants to my mom (reverse direction for a change! HA!), and started pulling the grass out of part that i don't want anymore. I really like puttering and weeding and killing slugs and grubs and stuff. (I do most things, including weed control and grass removal, sans chemicals. Slugs, however, get slug bait. The less toxic kind, but still slugbait. They can feed on the weeds on the side of the house if they want to live).

Re: Me too!
Or at least, I'm catching it. I spent a good chunk of yesterday evening buying dirt. Who knew there were so many kinds? I ended up getting two kinds of potting soil for my window boxes. Ye gods.

It's contagious....
Welcome to our disease...

If you need some nasturium seed, holler.
I have leftovers...both mixed (gold, yellows) and some red.
