Gardening is such a chore.
I've tried my hand at growing a garden. I put in the plant, water it, look after it, wait patiently for it to die, and sulk that yet one more of gods
creatures has said "Screw this I'd rather die than be cared for by that human!".
And you think.. how hard can it be, really?
I don't see mother nature popping out at night to carefully poke a hole in the ground, place the seed, water it, weed the area, care for the seedling
and wait for her to grow into a beautiful tree.
Naww, she just says "Right lads, drop your fruit." and bingo, a flamin' farm.
So I don't get it. If a fruit falls to the ground, is eaten by a scavenger, is pooped out 2 miles north of it, and it somehow managed to become a new
plant, WHAT the hell am I doing wrong.
It's gotta be 27 degrees celsius on a tuesday during winter in the southern hemisphere, and only if the month ends on Y or L, and never after a full
moon, near the equator, and you must use tap water as long as it has a sodium content lower than 0.000001ppm, with nitrogen added to it, to
facillitate new leaf growth, and you can use potting mix, if you use water beades, and never put it in direct sun light unless it's in the garden, in
which case it needs all the sun light it can get, in winter. And never let the soil dry out because it will dry out. And never saturate the soil, or
it will become muddy and plants that grow in nature live in gerariums..
Just GROW damn it... stupid nature...
Ooh I forgot though, My Trich. cactus is happily bulging out of it's own skin as she grows taller and her pup seems to be getting bigger than her!
I can, at least, grow a cactus!!
