So I started a bazillion little seeds in my kitchen over a month ago for this year’s Operation Black Thumb, and now I have a couple dozen seedlings struggling along. Yes, the attrition rates have been high this year! Not sure what the problem is, but I’m starting to think I need to get some grow lights if I start from seed again next year because I just don’t have a decent sunny spot in my house to set up seedlings. Patty has grow lights. Of course, Patty’s like a gardening genius, so she knows what she’s doing.
Patty is the other character in this week’s cartoon. She’s made one other appearance in ACW, and no I’m not going to link to it because I’ve only got a little time to post this before my parents come banging on the door telling me it’s time to do something. Yes, my parents are here. Yes, they will come looking for me if they want me to do something. I’m 41 and still taking orders. It sucks, but on the other hand my mom usually springs for a nice trip to the book store, so there.
Any way, Patty. Patty does square foot gardening, and she thinks I should try it. I think I should try it too, if only because it will give me a more organized way to kill plants. “Yes, this square foot is the burial plot for our tomatoes, and this square foot is for zucchinis. This square foot is still available though, Mr. Bell Pepper, so if you’re looking for a nice final resting place amongst friends…”
Patty has promised to help me with my garden. Which means Patty is crazier than I am. But I knew that when she offered to host this year’s Easter Egg Hunt at her place.
Thank god for Patty.
I’ll be at RavenCon in Richmond, VA, this weekend, volunteering for the convention. If you go and you see horns, it’s most likely me!
