I aspire to be a great gardener. I am not a great gardener, but I would love to be one!!!! I read and research as much as I can. I am involved in the planning and planting of our garden (that is, until I tore my calf muscle yesterday...=/...see previous blog) and love to putter around our yard imagining flowers here and there. I have actually planted some flowers and have more seed to put in the ground!! I pretty much have a blank canvas to work with here on the "propetty"! =)
Today, we got a sweet surprise!!! Two of our grape plants are not dead!!!! We purchased them last year (at Sam's of all places!!) on a whim. We wanted to see if it could be done here and wow! to have our own grapes...awesome!!
Anyway, we planted them and they did great for about 8 weeks. Then they began to wither. I can't really remember the exact time, but we thought we had killed them. Two of them for sure are gone. We pulled them out. But we left two, just because. I know they "rest" during the winter, but I really thought they were dead!!
But....we have new growth and we are so excited !!! Again!!! =) I'm pretty sure it will be years before we actually get fruit off of these tiny things, but hey, they are growing and that proves that I do not have a black thumb!! Right?!?!?!!!!
Now, if the same thing would happen with the fig trees!!!!Still waiting......
