Justin on: Gardening

So the summer sun has come, and with it my plants have begun the slow sad process of dying…unless I actually water them and research what to do with them! I can’t let dem marigolds die! No mama no!

Last night, at the “Walking Off the Artistic Cliff” event at the Brentwood Arts Exchange, I spoke with a woman about my potted plants. She said they’d die faster if they stay in pots, because they won’t have the same access to water and nutrients. Alas! Things I know but haven’t quite decided if I care or not. So, after a number of days, and seeing my housemate McKenna had watered my pots, for days now I’ve watered my plants and watched as they’ve come back to life. The lady recommends I buy portulaca, that it’s good for ‘desert sun.’ Hmm.

Coincedentally, my two new housemates Danielle and Will, have taken to hacking and conquering our weedy lawn, and so voila–maybe I will move my plants into the ground. Maybe the house can look nice for the last two months I’ll be there…OR, maybe I’ll say goodbye and let the house look the mess it is.

Random endless thoughts.

In any case, here’s a fun article on raised garden beds and how to make ’em.
