Root, Hog, or Die

I forgot to say that since plants are pushed on by "coded cells," (they're gonna do what they're gonna do) and I'm ready for spring to be here (while still grateful for all the things already blooming), I threw some wild flower seeds out in a bare part of our woods, hoping one or two or four will push through and bloom. Otherwise, my bad self says, "Let 'em root, hog, or die." I know, that doesn't exactly sound like a loving or hopeful sendoff but it's the best I had at the time. I'll let ya know how they do.

  1. I practice non-coddling plant husbandry, too.

    1. I'm thinking it's about the only way for me to go, particularly in the country where the animals roam and we aren't there full time!

  3. My experiences in gardening suggest that I find something that can take care of itself. =) Your wildflowers will probably do well. They are, in essence, weeds and do quite well without help, normally. It's in their DNA.
