I am horrible at growing things. Well, I really have not tried for a long time. In California, I used to have this pretty spectacular potted garden. This Cat Grass just sprouted up! Since moving to Ohio I have managed to kill all of my plants except my Jade Plant (Crassula Ovata).
I have neglected this Jade Plant so many times. I will forget to water it or move it to the sun. Yet this thing just keeps on living. I even got it to have flowers once. It was jaw-droppingly beautiful.
Last Sunday I went to the store and I bought a bunch of seeds and random plants. With the horrible weather, we have been having I did not get to plant in a garden out at my dad’s.
I went shopping!
So instead I went to The Dollar Tree and bought a bunch of pots. These are a dollar and I just used a drill to put some holes in the bottom for draining. Dollar Tree has a bunch of seeds too. Then I went to Walmart and I hit up the plants and some more seeds! Then I grabbed some dirt. Came home and got to planting!
I am incredibly proud of myself. It may not seem like much, but growing things makes me feel all magical. I am focusing on more natural herbs and some fruit. Lavender, Lemon Grass, Sage, Rosemary, Chamomile, Peppermint, Cat Grass, Catnip, and Blueberry bushes.
Wide range of fun stuff! I had already planted some strawberries, 2 blueberry bushes, and 2 blackberry bushes. These bushes were little more than sticks. They did not make it, as there was frost soon after I planted them. Like I had mentioned before, the weather has been horrible.
Luckily 3 of the 10 strawberry plants made it! So that is something. Frost didn’t kill everything. The Grass is the first thing to sprout from seeds. So it makes me very excited.
As a cat owner, I want this cat grass in the house for them to enjoy. One mistake many cat owners have is that they keep cats away from grass. They think it just makes them throw up. The grass is important for them to eat as it has vitamins and nutrients they need.
