Did you know...

Did you know that sometimes baby poop looks like chocolate?
Gillybean got up early the other day when I was not at home. Daddy found her without her diaper in the toy box. He thought he saw those little chocolate Easter eggs on the floor making a trail to the toy box. That is until he picked it up!! Yes he picked it up with his bare hands and sniffed!! Just look at that grin, how could you get upset at her?
Did you know it takes sunlight to make seeds grow?
I didn't know that, and yes I am kicking myself in the butt for it, but not giving up. I have a lot of faith and I know there is a learning curve. You know I gave them fresh water and planted them inside as I was instructed and I even put a heater on them. I didn't know they needed sunlight I thought they needed to be in the dark!! Poor little things I planted them right and then I just killed them!!
Did you know that a half inch puddle of water could splash up to and beyond 20 feet?
When we were out in front planting the herb garden I had to run my water there in front and some of it spilled over to the walkway. Gillybean came out in her t-shirt and diaper and started splashing with her teeny tiny feet and when I looked over there she had all her hair soaked and mud up her nose!! Not to mention what was on my back side!!
Did you know that no matter how perfect the timing is, when ever you plant a garden there is a monsoon like storm that very same evening?
We just planted our garden today and there is about 10 inches of rain coming down with lightning and all!! My little "runtlings" are out in this, first I kill most of them with no sun now it is going to rain them to death!! Not to worry though we sowed way more seeds than there were starters I figured the little ones, may not make it so I planted all over again.
Did you know that cats poop can get larger than a dogs poop!!
Our shed door had a 4 inch gap opening and there was cat poop in there that was so big I had to go around back and look for a hole in the wall that would have let a dog in!! Nope just some crazy stray cat in my shed. Pooping!! Big Poop!!! I was scared of the cat!!

Well, what an interesting posting! Thank you, I think I'll just "PASS" on my HERSHEY BAR tonight...It smells
a bit funny. Let's see, the cat IS outside.
Thanks, Clean and CRAZY (aren't we ALL?).

Wow! Lot's of crappy issues around your place lately! LOL!! Hope your garden begins growing properly soon! I think as a Nation we will begin to see a lot of home gardeners soon. We're even starting up community gardens here in my town. I am fortunate to own a lot that I will allow planting on in exchange for some of the bounty! Sounds great to me! Blessings Hon...and watch your step! Lisa

Oh so funny...I love all your realizations. You are learning lots of good stuff...funny that most of it is about poop. ;)
Take care,

You aren't kidding there is a learning curve on the garden thingy! The difference is, I have given up. But you aren't a quitter..well, you are a quitter, but a good one.
You know what I mean!
One day I will come here, and see a picture of a giant tomato.

Sounds like a lot of crap to me.

I hope that your garden gets going again. You can get some tomato plants at garden centers and put them in containers. They do really well.
