Since Christmas, I have nurtured a Jade plant, and since we left Augusta, I turned a clipping from a pothos plant to a real plant! It's a miracle. My old workplace, Stillwater Taproom, had beautiful pothos plants lining the wall opposite the bar that my manager and friend, Gene, takes care of. I wanted to bring a piece of Stillwater to Florida with me. The clipping rode in the front window of the Montero for the 5 hour drive, and the sun turned it black. It was too hot and almost killed the clipping. Somehow, with my care, it has two new leafs and enough roots from sitting in a glass of water for two months, to be planted.
- Herb garden, a huge variety I can go and pick from then I'm cooking in the kitchen
- Pepper and tomatoes. I want to grow all kinds of peppers and make my own cayenne pepper from the harvest. Grind them up and use all natural peppers in my cooking. Maybe even grow enough so they can be a very thoughtful gift to friends and family.
- Flowers, and lots of them. I want my Florida room to have things blossoming in it at all times, and be a little room to just forget about work and stress and kick back with sweet intoxicating smells taking over
- Vegetable garden. Am I pushing it with all these goals when I've only just begun. With Matt's help, I want to build some raised boxes in the backyard and have a vegetable garden. There is nothing better than picking your vegetables from your yard for dinner. Especially home grown potatoes and carrots. Absolutely delicious!
