Momma Mia has a green thumb. And she doesn't want to explain it. I don't know her secret gardening methods. And when pressed for details she'll just say she gives her plants LOVE.
Come on! *pout*
But maybe that's all she does. (I've caught her kissing her plants and yesterday she was kissing her pear tree.)
Sometimes I feel like a nursing mother. And i just want to hang out with the other nursing mothers and talk about the minutia of nursing. So I called La Leche League. I mean the USU Extension Services.
And i hooked up with horticulturist Meredith. She came over for an informal consult and i'm positively a buzz with her advice and different ways of seeing things. Because there are approximately ten million ways to plant a garden!
Oh what joy to discuss the life and death battle called gardening. What satisfaction to talk about crop rotation and online sources for supplies and sun angles and colony collapse disorder!! And different kinds of bug infestations and do you love how tall my sugar snap peas are? And what's your recipe for mint julep? YUM! And what in god's kingdom is growing out of my compost? And is it too early to register for the Diversified Agriculture Conference? And isn't that size of mulch so tacky?
A happy girl who is going to march back outside and take out my juniper bush so my poor little cantaloupes get more sun.
P.S. THANK YOU MEREDITH! You are a TREASURE!
