Day 349: Shammy Plant Lives!

image

My shamrock plant has reclaimed vitality! I couldn’t believe it!
It died for whatever reason and my plant savvy friends told me to keep it in the sunshine and keep watering it. Low and behold, it returned.

I love that they close up at night!
It seemed wildly active. I turned it away from the sun and within three hours it turned like a rotating satellite towards the sun.

If it continues being awesome I will buy it a slightly bigger pot and maybe even paint it pretty colors :-)

Day 320: Sprouts!

image

After only three days the little kale and cabbage have sprouted.
Look at the life erupting from the earth here!! It is an amazing amount of effort that goes into emerging from the dirt…at least in my opinion.

They have started stretching to one side. Yearning for as much sunlight as possible. Of course I want to move the seed tray every time I see them leaning, but I must hold back.

No word from the tomatoes yet, but I will be patient. They are fairly fast to sprout.
This part of gardening always makes me want to grab an old battered umbrella and make the plants grow higher. I want my plants to grow just like they do for Totoro (forest spirit) and the little girls in the cartoon. Wonderment

Good green post for St. Patrick’s Day!
I hope you are wearing or growing your green today.
Take care—Kat
