Pots and Dirt and Scary Cart Thingies

Lucy: Hey Xena, you went shopping with Mom. Did she get her basil to plant? I might try some of it this year.

Xena: I don’t think so. Something about still having nights below 40.

Chia: We better get more dogs if she needs more than 40 at night! Are you sure she didn’t say she needs more than four? That we’re getting another dog? Woohoo! We’re getting another dog, another dog I can be boss of!

Lucy: No, no more dogs. So, Xena, where did y’all go?

Xena: Oh, we just went to the big store with big carts that attacked me. I was brave and *quiver* hidbehindMomandshehadtocarryme. Then she bought a really big bowl which I hoped is my new food bowl and dirt, which I totally don’t understand since we have plenty of dirt in the dog lot. Remember when we came home and she dumped the dirt out in the woods from that other, smaller bowl and then poured the new dirt into what I hoped was my new food bowl and dug a hole in it for the plant thingie?

Lucy: Oh yeah. I remember her saying the aloe plant had a ton of new babies and outgrew its current pot. There it is on the porch table, with the mama plant surrounded by all her babies. So cute!

Chia: Then she took the other house plant that wasn’t looking so good and dumped all the dirt out in the woods – and I didn’t manage to get out of the fence that time – and pour a bunch of new dirt in the same pot.

It must like it’s new dirt cause it’s already looking better! I wonder what it tastes like. Hey! There’s my stone up there with it. Hey, Xena Sis, whatcha doin’?

Xena: Watching the plants grow.

    Charlee: “I don’t think Mama necessarily agrees with you on the digging up the plants part …”

  3. I do most of my ‘gardening’ in raised planters and patio pots, too…instead of directly in the ground. Right now my Basil is on the kitchen windowsill. Waiting for warmer days and nights. I need to restart my dahlias about now…I have had the same ones for many years, now.

    You know, Chia, I think its a good thing your Mom and Dad don’t have 40 pups…

  4. your mom is celebrating earth day today and replanting the plants to make them healthy like all 4 of you are.. I like planting in bowls and dog bowls, oops plant bowls better than digging in the good old earth
