That's how I feel this Monday morning. Totally mindless. As if my brains were sucked out by a
This morning I ventured out to check on some of the plants in the gardens. Everything is going great guns. The astilbe is coming up fast, but the begonias are slow as hell. I'm wondering if I'll have to write the nursery and ask for replacements. I have an old mock orange tree that I keep scaled down to a bush. It hasn't bloomed and I was wondering if it ever would. Well yesterday I was so surprised to find a few fragrant blooms on the tree. I have been babying that tree since 2 years ago. I've had it for 4 years now. I tried something different that I never heard of before. I poured a whole half liter bottle of club soda into the pot around the trunk about a week ago. Then bang I get flowers from a tree that never produced them in all the 4 years I've had it. It's because the club soda is like a fertilizer. It has natural minerals and phosphorus that plants crave. So this week when David goes shopping I'm going to have him grab up 5 more bottles of the stuff. If you want to try it, make sure it's the no or low salt club soda. This stuff perked up my house plants and that mock orange tree outside. I plan to pour it into my geraniums, begonias, and the astilbe. I'm wondering what it would do to the roses and the morning glories, or even the veggie garden. Hmmmmm.
Tickle Me Tuesday. Thursdays and Fridays will be open to whatever crazy shit I want to blog about. I don't know when I will be able to go back to Saturday or Sunday again. Right now it's pretty hard to run a 5 day blog. But I'll try to get back into the swing of things again before Autumn hits.
