These things are lame, but you know you love them. Since we are all counting down to our respective planting dates, might as well pass the time by with a gardening styled meme. So play it if you would like, just link back here for those that do participate. I may go look around for Mr. Linky to help on this one… stay tuned.
Ready? Run it.
Describe your gardening style.
You would think since we picked the questions, we could do a halfway decent job at answering them… but we didn’t really think like that. Our gardening style probably is that of a slightly green, intense (during the season), laid back (offseason – however, we are looking at doing year round maybe this year), smile-filled, beer or wine here and there type of gardener. Hope no one else wanted to use any commas today – because I think I just used them all.
We are also veggie gardeners probably 70% of the time and we are growing our skillset when it comes to other plants… we have big plans this year. Lots of foliage on the way. That is where the other 30% of the time will go.
What was the last plant you bought?
We bought some tulips that had already started to come out, about 2 dozen or so for a barrel. Here is a link.
What were the last seeds you bought?
9 Million different kinds, not sure which one got scanned first. We did just get in some seeds from TMSeeds – however we did not pay for them… they were a trade deal for that lil banner you see to the right. Expect to get a post soon about those and what we ended up with. Lots of goodies
When was the last time you had to pick the dirt from under your nails?
Probably Sunday – we did a bunch of planting of seeds this weekend.
Any big plans for the garden this year?
Always… and since we do not have a garden at our new house – we must create one. That and pretty much trying to take out as much grass as possible in the front yard and just whipping the backyard into shape in general. Also – we are going to try and build a patio on this summer that will give some relief from the heat and I’m sure encompass some sort of planters or things of that nature.
What was has been your biggest mistake in gardening EVER?
We once planted the entire bulb/head of garlic. Seriously. About a week or two later with no signs of anything really happening – we read something that said to plant the CLOVES… are you kidding me!?!?! We thought at the time of planting that this had to be some kind of mistake – I mean the bulb/head was already big… would it grow into the size of a melon? Nope.
Last year, before we moved – we had an awesome crop of peppers (Jalapeno, Bell, Banana, Santiago, Sweet Cayenne). This was after a very slow summer, with it starting with one of the hottest/windiest days in a long time. From one extreme to another I guess made the success that much better.
If you could be doing anything right now in regards to gardening… what would it be?
Honestly, we would be happy just staring at our plants watching them grow. Some music going, messing with seeds… watering, weeding… hell anything. We would rather be WEEDING… thats how bad we wish we were not at work. haha
So there you have it. Get after it. I am not going to name people to do it, because no one needs that pressure… seriously. Don’t you hate when you get named on one you don’t want to do? We do too. But – this is only if you want to participate. If no one wants to do it… I guess we will just do it by ourselves… all alone… crying… in silence… cold… scared… solo.
I’m sure we will be fine. Use the Mr. Linky tool here to link back.
