This is the lovely sweet potato plant that I mentioned before
We’re also planting peas and look at this little sim plant:
Only a couple days before it was *tiny*.
And about a week after, dad and them finally put stakes down for it and…lo! it twined itself around it overnight.
Plants are both freaky *and* amazing.
I mean…one day you have a bucket of soil in which you scattered zinnias
and the next day there are these green things poking up. It’s so gross!
Seriously! It’s weird to see things poking up in soil all by themselves.
Unfortunately some days later mom found a frog squatting in the pot and it damaged the zinnias :-( So must wait longer. One day I will tell you about frogs and this house.
Like worms and spaghetti and pencils standing with the pointy side up. They give me shivers…make me want to gag (I’ll post the sprouts when I upload).
Or my dwarf pineapple (yes! remember the dwarf ornamental pineapple from the orchid show? A couple days later we went to the place mom buys a lot of her plants and there was one! Just one! Waiting for me! To buy! Well. I bought! Okay mom bought it for me :-)
If you look at that picture you can see purple tips…barely.
But as it grew…white spikes with purple tips started poking out from the pineapple (must upload picture). I mean how gross is that? Things spiking. EW. To cap it all, it looked like the pineapple had acne…a pimple…ripe and discoloured on your face waiting to be burst!!!!
Doesn’t it look like it’s having a breakout??
Now the spikes are gone and there are little flowers or something in its place. See. the pimple spike burst into flowers…
This was a summary of my entry into gardening.
I have to repot stuff soon.
