I expect to see cigarette smoke and hear clinking of glasses soon .. but the "girls" try to wait until I go to bed before they drag out all the gear and invite their friends over .. kitties can really party !
So in the middle of January MADNESS here is the plan ... occupy myself with alien growth machine and see if it really does work or is it brain washing under cover .. this thing "hums" and usually something like that might have me climbing the walls unless it is at the right pitch .. Thankfully right now it is, but I haven't put the seed plugs in yet so there could be a variance of said pitch .. we shall see .. they include thyme, basil and chives with some packets that look like they come from a Chinese food delivery (soy sauce or maybe plum ?) for growth boost ?
Obviously the safest place for this is on the kitchen hutch where the girls have never tried to venture ... wait for it ... I'm sure they will catch on .. chives might just look like cat grass to them ?
Meanwhile I looking longingly at my Provence lavender hanging from a hook by my "desk" .. must dust up there some day .. but still it emits a warmth of how gorgeous those plants looked during the season .. will it ever return ???? BIG sigh !
I looked at more seed kits for this machine and hit the lavender one .. but pray tell why they never say WHICH damn lavender variety is it ?? Customer service has an e-mail minus the word "damn" they might just think I am a garden-redneck idiot ? go figure ?? ;-)
