I'm a killer of houseplants!
Hello everybody! I haven't done much blogging lately because I have stayed busy cleaning, and also doing fun things this weekend. Doozey says hello too!
I think I have about decide that any plant requiring more water than once a month (houseplants), just basically will be killed under my care! This is so sad. My two Fittonias have just died from neglect...OMG, I am ashamed!!! I still have my Spider Plant, and a few Pothos left...oh and my Angelwing Begonia, and a couple others, but basically I am discouraged that I am such a watering weakling! Succulents really are the only thing for me!
I am fixing to take out one whole tire full of near dead, if not dead, Stapeliad Giganteas. That particular tire is actually a stack of three tires high, and I am going to separate them and get one more tire, so I can have two that are two tires high. In those I will plant okra and collards for a little summer garden. Now, you may ask just how I intend to water them daily??? I will not allow myself to walk into the house each day after work until I walk around there and water immediately! One good thing is that I see the tires out my kitchen window, so it will remind me several times a day.
I am also discouraged with myself because I keep intending to cut the top edges off all my tires, and I never have even tried yet to do it. I will experiment with the ones I take apart for the vegetables, and I am hoping I can be successful. I hope I will not have to spend a fortune on a tool that will do the trick. Tonight I saw an electric sawing action type thingy that construction guys were using at my grocery store...(another expensive tool, for sure)...I asked them if they thought it would cut through a tire, and they all said yes! Hmmmmm. I need a nice construction man to bring his cutter to my tires and get er done! LOLOL.
