i like to try new things, usually it ends in ruin.

soooooooo, in the end of march, the little one and i popped some seeds into some dirt pucks.

i mean, it wasn't as casual as that...

last year was the first year i had dirt at my residence... ie, NOT an apartment but a house. i LOVED it. i bought and planted so much stuff, so much. it cost me a million dollahs and i was poor all summer. literally. so i figured this year i would start seeds indoor and try to rid myself of some of the cost as well as have MORE plants. so i took my calendar and marked the exact number of weeks until may 2-4 when i could plant outside and proceeded to follow the seed packet directions to the letter.

well, stuff started to grow immediately, namely the morning glories have gone insane.

someone tell me what the hell i do with these things... i made the executive decision to stick wooden skewers into their pucks so they had something to climb on, but i fear that it won't stop them from climbing onto each other in one giant mass. also, how big are they going to be by may, for god's sake? do i transplant them (where do i put THAT)? do i leave them in the tray? what? WHAT? these are never going to make it outside before they die, are they. :(

so seriously, PLEASE ADVISE me on how to care for these things.

i was going to suggest you make morning gloritos with them, but you probably already thought of that.

I kill plants by just looking at pictures of them. I will be slinking away into the shadows now...

in fact, i had thought of that. i think you can put pretty much any kind of leaf with the pitu.

it's the shellfish extract that makes it good. (sorry, i know you're barfing.)
