KEY DIGITS to GREEN THUMBS


In the midst of furious hustle to produce work for clients it's nice to detach your digits from the computer and put em to use outside. Today I cleaned up the weeds clinging to the declining wall of our driveway. After that I decided to get one of our planter boxes packed with interesting flavor. I salvaged whats left of my terrarium (sorry Jen & Josh, they needed more sunlight than Seatown could give), my Ikea plant, and a lil flower and a single Rhododendron. I found some really neat moss around the cracks of our drive way and packed it around too.

I have another smaller planters box that I would like to plant some pretty flowers in. Anyone recommend some cheap pretty flowers to get? Maybe a couple of diff ones? Talk to me!

I've really been getting into plant life & farming. I most likely will end up on a farm one day while pursuing GV/design/LGC.

I just did some gardening yesterday... planted some tomato plants into a planter box... at 10pm!!

After I was done, I realized that I forgot to loosen up the dirt around the plants before putting them into the planter, so I hope they still grow. Also, I made sure to put my coffee grounds in with the dirt because I hear that is a good thing to do, although I'm not sure what its really supposed to do.

Hi! So Bleeding Hearts are really cool and Marigolds as well. They'd be a good contrast...dainty mixed with bold.
