Green with Envy

Tuesday, May 09, 2006

I don't have much of a green thumb. I'm good at the heavy lifting, the raking, the mowing, but not at making pretty green things grow and flourish and live beyond a week or two. But I've set out to rectify this! Thirty 40-lb. bags of top soil, organic humus and cow manure later, and I have GREEN! And hopefully I will soon have the flowers to show for it. Celosia, Cosmos, Marigold, Nasturtium and Tithonia!

  • I'm not good at getting the green to appear or live so I can relate to your excitement over the bit of green you have!

    I hope it prospers and grows!

  • I have a semi green thumb. (It works every once in a while).
    About a month ago, I sowed 3 packages of seeds for a flower garden. Not one single leaf has come up!!!! LOL
    Looks like I'll have to settle for watching yours grow instead!

  • water and sunshine, those are the key ingredients.
    and i just saw your knitting below, beautiful, i'm jealous. i'm left handed and always had issues trying to get someone to teach me, i can knit a scarf, sort of, and make it really, really long.

  • I believe you can eat marigolds and nasturtiums...but check on that first.

    I love to see things grow. Especially if I've planted them! Life is such a wonderful thing!

  • I planted some bulbs and I'm not seing any green yet so I'm starting to worry that maybe i didnt do it right? Can you go wrong planting bulbs?

    Our soil round here is rubbish though. It's like clay!

  • I was doing really well for a while ... kept my orchid alive for over two months, then I forgot about it ... and it died. But good luck, maybe you got Maw's good genes, the Green genes.

  • You go girl...be careful with your nasturitiums though...they need more water than the others do...but you got a pretty good combo of flowers going...ummm..the nasturitiums are edible too..the whole plant..it's an herb really or I think so.

    Good Luck..I'm sure it'll be gorgeous.

  • I'm with you, Lass.
    I suck at growing things.
    I can kill any plant...anywhere...anytime.
    Plants run when they see me coming.
