April 6th - I used to have house plants. I also planted flowers, in a flower bed once and they actually grew. Then as I had more children, cats, dogs, moved a few times my thumb turned black and they all died. The plants, not my thumbs or the humans and animals in my care. Now I have trouble taking care of cactus. Yeah, I don't know what this is all about but now I'm going to attempt a small vegetable garden with my daughter aka Duchess. I have been thinking about trying again because I feel the need to grow my own organic food. I could go on and on about our food supply but I don't have time right now and well, focusing on one topic at a time is something I am really having trouble with these days. As I noted above, I've been thinking about growing a vegetable garden lately and then the Duchess texted me last week asking me what I thought about the two of us doing a small one. Perfect. Now I have someone to help keep me focused.
