Speedy Update

Planted July 22nd, 2020

Checking in with Speedy, my avocado tree…

So far no upward sprouts, and I wonder if I should move him to a sunnier spot.  I will water him well and let him get more direct sun tomorrow.

More sun should help get his photosynthesis mojo going, right?  I’ll let you know…

Don’t You Poop on my Plans!

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.  flower pot

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.

I’m Too Young to be This Confused!

What the heck?  For years I (thought) I had a Facebook page. I would post things, read comments, make friends, all that stuff.

It turns out that what I had was a profile page.  Huh?!?  I wanted to connect my blog to my FB page, but I could not because the only “page” I owned was my Mary Kay for Mountain Women page.

So, today I created a “page” called Jodi Lea’s Place (same name as the blog).

If you are reading this on Facebook, please throw it a “like” or something.  I may have to connect my page to my profile somehow.  I am feeling really confused now and it makes me MAD.  I actually have a blog called “The Rant”.  Maybe I should connect that to FB…
