I took a break on the blogging, but I’m growing more than ever.

Over Christmas Break I went to Hawaii and came back with two orchids and a kahili ginger. My nice orchid is living with my parents where it can be babied and not devoured by my Jules and my cheap-o one is just hanging out, not looking much different than when I got it, but the ginger is starting to take off. My mom has had plenty of success with the same plant in the past, so that’s not surprising. I hope it blooms this summer, but it’s so hard imagine it getting big enough to do so. We’ll see!

I had my wedding shower at the end of February and it was garden themed, so I got tons of new garden-oriented toys. I got not one, but *two* Aerogardens, a 6+ and a Pro 200. I’ve started the herb kit that came with the 6+ and aside from the basil coming up purple when it was supposed to be green everything has been working just like it’s supposed to. I’m using the lights from the Pro200 to start seeds under and it’s wonderful so far. I’ll post an update soon about seed starting and my constantly evolving plans for summer.

My chives are back too
