These were only planted SUNDAY! And we have a pea plant sprouting already (photo was taken Wed. evening)! I can't believe it! Well, hopefully it's a good omen for our garden! :-)
Also, I don't know if YOUR family is always in search of the next "big idea" that is going to make them rich, but I have to report that I think I have discovered our "gold mine". Well...maybe not a "gold mine" per se....Well, if only we could figure out how to turn an uncanny talent for growing aloe plants into millions of dollars...
Pretend you don't see that dead plant to the right.
For some reason, we are able to grow these enormous aloe plants. I think it must be because they do well with my husband's watering "technique" - which is to basically let them dry out like the Sahara desert before he gets around to watering them again. These aloes seem to thrive on abuse. These aren't even all of them. I mean, we actually have a problem with them outgrowing their pots and then....DH repots and splits the babies off and then we have....MORE ALOE PLANTS! Does anyone know of some kind of franchise affiliate program for aloe plants (maybe "Aloes R Us"?) we could get into??
