Gardening is in my blood. My cousins own Gertens Greenhouses, my Grandpa Gerten owned the Farmington Greenhouse for many years and my mom went to college for floral design. So far my only experience with plants is killing them. It’s time to get in touch with my roots. Literally.
I’ve been trolling the Brooklyn Brainery class list for a few months now and finally found one that I can take — Gardening Basics: Seed-Starting Party! For just $5 I will learn how to jump start my fire escape garden along side some smart and friendly green thumbed folks. The Plant Bio 101 class also looked interesting, but I’ll continue to rely on Jameson to teach me about that.
One of the best things about being home this summer is spending time with my step-dog Lucy. I like to think that she’s all mine though. She’s my main girl. I never understood how people loved their pets so much until Lucy became a part of my life. We have so much in common…constant hunger pangs especially! I don’t think I’ll be able to make it through that ridiculously sad Sarah McLachlan commercial anymore.
