After all the talk of gardening, growing
things, etc. I decided to go ahead and
pick up a few seeds to start. I'm not
really quite sure what to do with
them, but I'm going to read all the instructions that came with the packets, as well as maybe google some stuff to see what I can come up with. The lady that helped me at Lowe's said that I should just buy these little plastic pots that are all connected together, and all I had to do was add water and the seeds. So, that's what I did. I have one big one for flowers and a few herbs, and the a smaller one for some tomatoes. She made it all sound so easy; a little too easy, really. I have never really had a green thumb, or any green appendages for that matter, so I'm not sure what the outcome of this venture will be. You may even remember my tulip incident from a few months ago, and be wondering what the heck I'm thinking. I'm not actually certain myself what I was thinking. But, now I have all the supplies, I may as well give it a try. I'll update you with pictures, and hopefully something grows so that I'm not just showing picture after picture of pots of dirt.
On a sad note, our dog chewed my iPod charging cord, and I sadly cannot listen to music while I plant. I'm also not very happy with the dog; he's outside until my husband comes home. With a new iPod cord.
But I do have a happier note to end on. I found a FREE lawn mower today! I check our local Freecycle group daily, and usually I'm too late to get anything good. But someone south of Polson has a couple lawn mowers they're giving away, and no one has claimed them yet! Yay! We don't have one, since we've never had a yard of our own, and will need one once we put some sod down (or plant grass, we haven't made that decision yet). I am actually not sure if either one of them work, but we're going to give it a try. I'm so excited for spring!
