There was a community garden representative there sharing gardening tips, experiences, plants and seeds! They gave me a complimentary start-up mixed lettuce plant, and helped me choose three kinds of seeds: Giant Sunflowers Heirloom Titan, Rainbow Chard Neon Glow, and Bush French Filet Beans Rolande! When I showed my start up plants to the farmer I was buying fresh produce from, he held my plant like a baby and said, “oh, this one will grow up to be like this kale; and this one, is going to be this kind of spinach; and this is a mesclun.”
Whoa! As a physician, humans typically flourish under my care; but rarely plants. In honor of this upcoming Earth Day, I suppose it’s about time for me learn how to take care of plants too!
