Gardening Drivel [ May 03, 2003, 11:40 a.m. ]

Today was going to be my gardening day but the weather is not permitting. After 2 days of torrential rain the yard is a mud pit. Hopefully tomorrow is warmer and drier. looks like itís clearing to the west..the day may get better!

We bought some astilbe, snow on the mountain, hosta and something purple (mmm..purple). I planted the new batch of castor beans and the other seeds are doing great. If Castor 2.0 crashes, Iíll admit defeat and buy plants at the place I bought them last year..if they have them. My Mom always did well with seeds. I donít have much luck. Pray for the Thunbergia.

I want to plant 4 oí clocks but donít know where to plant them. Thereís not much full sun in this yard.

Hereís a plant tip for the black-thumbed, ďWater your plants when they need it.Ē I know that sounds retarded but itís the best advice I ever got from a grumpy old man at an orchid greenhouse. Stick your finger in your plants and see if they are dry..then water. After a while you know which plants need more water more often. For me, thatís about twice a week in the summer and weekly in the winter. Some things get watered about every 3 days when itís warm (That reminds me..I need to feed the orchid.)

Garden Fag.. ..

Hmm..speaking of Gayness, R and I have tickets to see ďFosseĒ tonight.

I slept until 10:30 this morning! WooooooHooooooo!
