I Want to Plant Shit… But I Don’t Know What
EDIT: I just realized the title and how it makes it sound like I work for the Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Office… too funny… no, sorry, if you were coming here expecting this to be an article on Steven Avery, Brendan Dassey and the incompetent assholes running the state of Wisconsin, I apologize. This is just me wanting to plant seeds not evidence.
I was so exited to start planting stuff today to get ready for Spring but when I looked out the window this morning and saw all the snow, I changed my mind. It deflated my excitement. But the thing is, I want to plant shit but I don’t know what!
Last year I planted Jalapeños, Habeneros, started to grow a lemon tree… but this year, I want to branch out a bit more… they have to be able to grow in pots and be easy to tend to. I like sitting out on my patio during the warmer months, put my headphones in, drink a beer and just relax and escape from reality for a bit and enjoy nature.
I definitely want to grow some tomatoes this year. I love homegrown tomatoes and I love tomato sandwiches! But what else should I plant?! I need help! I’m open to any type of plant as long as it’ll survive Iowa, doesn’t require a huge amount of care and can survive living in a pot!
I can’t wait for the warm weather to get here and stay and all of the plants to start sprouting! Sheesh… I’m getting old!
Until next time, take care!
