I'm growing things!

I'm growing things!!!

I want a puppy really bad, so I am trying to work up to it with respect to the responsibility having a doggie requires. So I've started out with a little mini container garden right on my balcony. If things start dying, then there will be no dog.

I am so proud of myself. Starting from seed which I soaked in saltpeter, I've planted spicy mesclun, arugula and spinach. So far so good. I get up every morning and I'm like "YES! It hasn't died yet!"

The downside to this is I've become completely addicted to gardening, so I'm at Walmart (yes Wal-Mart: all of their gardening supplies are more than half off) 24/7 buying things I don't need. I'm trying to find a cute hummingbird feeder because one keeps buzzing around my balcony. I'm also all over the gardening catalogs. I just ordered a really cool culinary herb seed collection for wine lovers. I can't wait to get my hands on it! Posted by Picasa
