It was raining all day yesterday. Just none stop rain. One of those days where you wake up & it’s raining & you go to bed & it’s raining. Sometimes rainy days are pretty awesome. Like when your an adult & just need a break… But when your a kid those long rainy days cause feel like a bore. Like this young Mourning dove chick. He was not having it. He had some severe cabin fever at one point. It was also the first time he really showed off his wings!
The plants are doing pretty well! The tomatoes have really rooted down and are growing rather magnificently! The lettuce was doing so well that I had to transplant one of them into it’s own container, so now I have two containers of lettuce. One of the cabbage was encroaching on the other one, so I transplanted that one into it’s own container but I’m pretty sure that I was too late. That one may be a goner. We’ll see if it thrives in it’s own container, keep your fingers crossed for that one. I also had an onion that started to sprout so I planted that in it’s own container as well! The basil has seen better days but I replaced the soil with new soil and planted it deeper into the soil. Maybe that will help it root down some more?
I started with four pots and now have seven! Oh, and my buddy, The Mountain Man, has a huge pot that he wants to give me. I’m still mulling it over on if I will take it or not. I don’t want to plant anything else in case this turns out to be a complete failure! Haha.
What did I just do? I came home from Home Depot with this:
What the heck got into me? I’m a city girl, damn it!
…Because I came home from the Farmers Market with vegetables…vegetable PLANTS. I started my own container garden. What did I just get myself into? I’m known to kill the most heartiest plants. I’ve killed cactus before. I have two black thumbs…but yet, at the farmers market, I couldn’t help myself. They were all over the place. Staring at me with their beady little eyes telling me, “Take me! Take me home and plant me!” So I did…and now I have this:
Lettuce! I’ve never planted before and I chose lettuce!
Tomatoes. Everyone says tomatoes grow well in MD.
Cabbage. Why did I pick cabbage?
Wish me luck. Better yet, wish the plants luck…they need it more than I do!
