Lawn and Garden

As most of you know, I've been helping out in our lawn and garden department. It's really fun, because I get to lift heavy things (like bags of manure), get caught in tornadoes, and other fun stuff. I also get to look at plants. MAN I LOVE PLANTS.

I think I should stop reading about plants while living in this apartment, because apart from our patio (which is already very crowded and slightly uninviting), I have no where to actualize my dreams of being one of those old ladies with the crazy grey flyaway hair in a bun, talking to my garden all day. You know, the one with the house that all the neighborhood kids are scared of. With the cat(s). Yeah, that lady. I can't be her.

In the meantime, I thought I'd make note of some fantastic stores online, where one can purchase seeds, seedlings, and saplings. I think they sell other shit, too.

I have turned our back porch into a plethora of plants. I think it drives R crazy, but, really, it's wonderful so I don't care. I want more plants, though, so I have to curb my enthusiasm or else we won't be able to use the patio furniture that was donated by my aunt.

Jess and I did an experiment in 8th grade and talked to plants. Turns out talking to them has a positive effect. Can have negative one too if you talk mean.

Yay plants.
