I hate it when party-poopers find out you are planning something. After hearing the details they have to tell you why that is a waste of time, it’s not going to work, blah, blah, blah.
I bought some avocado on sale around Cinco de Mayo. I saved the seeds and propped them up in vases so their bottoms would be underwater. One sprouted a root really quickly, the other 2 have not. Speedy, I name all my plants, needed to be planted, he was raring to go!
I found a pretty pot with a reservoir and some old potting soil amongst my gardening things. Perfect! Now Speedy is all snug in his pretty pot on our front deck. I have to watch out for hungry forest animals who may want to much on the tender sprouts.
Anyway, they scoffed the last time I grew an avocado tree. It lives happily in Southern California now.
Same when I planted Sunflowers back when we lived in town. They were gorgeous! And we enjoyed the seeds too.
The point is – don’t listen to the nay-sayers, party-poopers, or otherwise negative people. Plant things, write poetry, bake things, make quilts – Be your best YOU.
