Once a month I write about something totally unrelated to my life as a contribution to Etsyblogger's Blog Carnival. This is it for March.
How it works is someone (usually not me) would volunteer to host the carnival and take care of the admin work. She would also have to think up 2 questions for the Etsybloggers to answer in their posts.
March 26th carnival is hosted Lazy T Crochet.
Here are her questions:
1) Cabin Fever - What do you do or what are you looking forward to doing to escape the doldrums?
2) Planning a garden this year? Tell us how you plan or prepare. Do you start your own seeds and how?
As you can see, the questions being asked are very tough. Harder than Additional Mathematics. Still I'm going to attempt a post on the topic.
I'm answering question 1. Here goes....
This year I'm not planning a garden because first of all I live in a flat and there's nothing but concrete. Sure, I could buy a few potted plants but have you met the mosquitoes policemen? If they know you have potted plants, they'll insist on entering your home to check for mosquito larvae. They'll spray smelly stuff all over your home. So I'm saying No to potted plants.
Also, many years ago when I first moved into my current home, I'd bought 2 potted cactus to "grow". I'd been told that it's impossible to kill cactus and I was very confident I would grow green thumbs. Anyway, the cactus died because I over watered them. Technically, they drowned.
So, to avoid killing anymore plants, I'll stick to my plan of Forever Never Growing A Garden.
