Lavender in November

image

Someone forgot to tell my lavender that the old saying is: the first year new plants sleep, the second year they creep, and the third year they leap.  This started out in a four inch container.  It is now roughly three times the original size and despite the first frost, it is still growing and blooming.  I wonder if the aquarium water I’ve been pouring on it every couple of weeks has anything to do with it.  I’d guess so.

Why a garden?

image

My window herb garden.

1. I love plants in the house.  They make a house more welcoming in my opinion.

2. I love to cook, but am a snob about my herbs for said cooking.

3. I have always loved the looks of window herb gardens.

4. I had the perfect south-facing window.

I just had to try to do herbs in the window. Then it was a container garden. Now I’m up to raised beds and eyeing roto-tillers.

I’ll warn you now, gardening is addictive.

It is also highly rewarding. There is nothing like my homemade marinara made with herbs from my garden.

I’m not an expert and I’m not claiming to be one.  What I am is someone who is trying, failing, trying again, and eventually succeeding.  Come along and let me show you what I’ve got so far.

Hello world!

For some time I have been watching the blogging phenomenon and the world in general.  I decided that it was time for me to put my views out there for public consumption.  Some of them will be hard to chew.  Most will be hard to swallow for the average raging idiot that seems to be the norm these days.  But there are a few of you out there that will probably simply goggle in stunned amazement that someone finally had the balls to say what you’ve all been thinking.  No, I will not be updating this on a regular schedule.  I’ll be updating when something in particular sticks in my craw or when I need to purge mentally in order to better understand my own thoughts and feelings.  Will you see my views change?  If ever this blog lasts that long.  Will you see me grow as a person?  If ever this blog lasts that long.  In the end…

We’ll see.
