Oh jeez. I get busy and then I neglect this blog (and my plants, to a degree). Forgive me, people that read this and plants on my balcony and stuff! Thankfully the plants are none the worse for wear.
When I did my initial put-plants-outside-again cleanup and stuff, I trimmed back the thyme I [...]

Life has been so busy, especially with trying to prepare for vending my candles at the West Windsor Renaissance Faire this upcoming weekend. I hope I do real well, but to do that I need to have enough stock, so there’s a mad candle-making scramble.
But anyway! Plants!
My mom had told me that my [...]

Last week, an exciting discovery was made at work. Of course, the Lowe’s garden department gets tomatoes– for one, the Bonnie plants have a lot of tomato choices– but we also get some non-Bonnie. I was planning to pick some small plants up at some point, since my attempt at growing them from [...]

I started today off (well, sort of, I guess it was already 11am) by planting carrots at my boyfriend’s place. They aren’t really great for containers since they need room to grow downwards, but he had a patch o’ dirt that seemed to be free of most things. He’s out towards the coast, [...]

I haven’t posted any morning glory photos yet! Last year, my blog pretty much became nothing but them. Of course, I don’t yet have any flowering, which is part of it. So far, only small seedlings… but I have doubt that they’ll be in bloom in no time!
I really love morning glories most [...]

Last year at work, I’d been eying these neat houseplants. They had the neatest leaves– dark, dark green, with a coating of purple fuzz. They’re called Purple Passion Plants or Purple Velvet plants. Officially, it’s Gynura aurantiaca.
Unfortunately, a lot of the indoor plants at work don’t get the best watering and these tend to suffer [...]

I don’t know how, but somehow, yesterday, I totally missed the fact that the pot containing some gladiolus bulbs (which bloomed two years ago but not last year) and rain lilies had buds off of some of the lily stems. Truth be told, I’d forgotten about the lilies completely and just figured my [...]

First off, I am absolutely loving this warmer weather. Today, working out in the garden center at my job, I was actually almost too warm, but that was fine by me! And then I ate ice cream with my coworker which made it even better. But that’s besides the point.
I meant to post [...]

I had a busy weekend, and then today I worked a 9 hour day, so there really hasn’t been too much going on in balcony-land. However, a quick look earlier revealed some seedlings coming up in the pot with the lettuce and komatsuna seeds. Fingers crossed that it is, indeed, one of the [...]

Finally, it’s raining here!
Pardon the mess… and blame the spilled dirt on the cursed squirrel.
And because it wouldn’t be complete without a morning glory…
