I don't have much of a green thumb. In fact, my husband is in charge of our houseplants, which sometimes get a little forgotten about, as you can see. However, my husband seems to have this amazing talent of saving our houseplants from the brink of death. These are our thirsty cacti. Too bad they don't offer life insurance rates for plants!
We're having a "surprise" snowstorm today. We have about 4" of totally unpredicted snow this morning. Luckily for me I had only some tentative plans today that were quickly canceled due to the weather, so I can actually enjoy the snow day. My daughter is supposedly re-organizing her closet, but I haven't gotten up yet to check on the status of that situation. I don't really want to. :-O These projects usually end up unfinished, which I warned her about. We'll see what happens. For now I choose to remain in blissful ignorance.
So, as the snow is falling my thoughts are turning to spring, and as I mentioned in an earlier post, we are thinking of having a garden this year. And when I say "we", what I really mean, is that my husband is interested in being in charge of the project, and I said I'd be more than willing to help (by watering it, weeding, etc.). A big problem we have is that we have hungry and abundant wildlife. I know I've posted before about our deer problem and the struggle I have trying to find landscaping plants they won't eat. Imagine if we have tasty vegetables out there - we are going to have to look into how we can be sure the deer won't get into the garden. We also have plenty of smaller critters too, especially bunnies. Gotta figure out how to keep them out too. Anyone have any suggestions on how to "critter proof" a garden??
