I’m no gardener. As a matter of fact, every single plant that has been given to us has suffered premature expiration, no matter how much attention I give it.
But as the kids grow older and I find myself thinking that I Need to show them how to plant things, thinking that one day we might even have to grow our own food, I finally got round to buying some starter kits for potted plants at the local hardware store. It’s been about 5 days since we first planted our flower seeds and nothing’s happening (yet, I hope). Still, I’m trying to remember to get the kids to water their own little pots every afternoon.
Today I’m doing another little experiment. I want to know if I can substitute soil with used, ground coffee beans, and have planted a saga seed in it. Fingers crossed!
