Welcome to the blog dedicated to exposing my weird sense of humor for your enjoyment with a hint of environmental friendliness. When I'm not writing about crazy happenings in my day to day life, I'm making people aware of the environment and how they can do their part to keep it clean. I'm not the Go Green Nazi & I'm not saying you have to be Davie Crockett w/ your coonskin cap or force your family to live like the Swiss Family Robensons- just a simple plant on your desk at work or sitting out on your back patio is fine. If I can get just one person to even think & be more aware of the environment around them, I know I've played my part in helping out, no matter how small it may seem.

Starting seeds at my apt for the first time!

Ok, I've decided to try my hand at growing Black-eyed Susan's in my apt. The elements are against me but I'm determined to do this dammit!:

Problem #1 There's the crazyass cat of mine that I'm sure will want to scope out the new seedlings (& possibly bat at them & tear them out!).
Possible Solution: grow the seedlings in the bathroom by the window & close the door. I know this will obviously keep the cat out, but I'm hoping this is the ideal place for the seeds to grow - a muggy, tropical like bathroom.

Problem #2 Once the seedlings are ok to transplant, there's the crazyass fat squirrel outside (are you seeing a pattern here w/ crazyass animals yet) that thinks it's funny to dig in my pots and stash his peanuts & whatnots that he finds.....one day he'll get his - he has to cross a busy road sometime!
Possible Solution: not sure yet - trying to think of something that doesn't involve a BB gun or rat poison (remember - I'm pro nature, but this is soooo tempting!)

Keep checking back on the seed-saga ......maybe we should start making bets as to how much the seeds will grow & if & when they kick the bucket, will it be the cat or the squirrel that claims victory!

You could grow spinach indoors!! We all know how much you like spinach in your salads!! Better yet grow the spinach and not eat it! Maybe the squirrel can eat it?

I want to see a picture of this crazyass squirrel. I don't think it exists. I think it is just a figment of your imagination that you use as a reason your plants die. Lima Bean and I use to see aardvarks when we drank. heehehe
