One of Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop prompts this week is about gardening, and it just so happens that we just did some planting.
Like, literally, just did, on Sunday and Monday.
Besides growing some herbs in a whiskey barrel, this is the very first gardening I've ever done. Heck, who am I kidding? Mark did the whiskey barrel, not me.
So this is the very first gardening I've ever done.
'Cause I have never had a green thumb. I'm serious. Every plant anyone has ever given me, I've killed.
But that's all going to change! Because now, for some reason unknown to me, I care.
I wonder if it's age. Or maturity, Patience, maybe?
In my Listicle last week I put gardening on my list of things I'd spend extra money on if I had it.
If you blog it, they will respond!
My Aunt Renee read that post and said to herself, "I can help Jen with that!" And so she did. She has some mad gardening connectionz (and skillz), yo!
So, one of the things I've been wanting is a decorative planter bed out front. This is what my Aunt helped us with.
|Getting ready and getting started...|
|We have a bed and some plants in the ground...|
|Get the mess outta there and top it off with some pretty dirt...|
|Add a couple hanging planters to the porch, and there you have it!|
|We have a bigger space to the right of this where another planter will go.|
I have a lot to learn, but I'm finally interested. I still don't get why, what changed.
The kids had fun rescuing worms from the cut up sod and throwing them back into the dirt! One worm got lost on the driveway and died. Poor worm.
Thank you, Auntie!
