I have a bonsai tree, but it is indoors now since it is snowy here. I'm not very good at taking care of plants and it's starting to not look so good. I don't know if it will last very long into spring and I'm surprised it's made it 4 months with me taking care of it. I think it is supposed to be kept outdoors, which is probably why it's dying
C has a veggie and herb garden he's growing on his porch. He's thinking of transplanting the onions and potatoes into a bed in the yard, but he still wants to grow his tomatoes and peppers on the porch. The herbs are growing like crazy, we love cooking with them.
When I was in college my GF and I had an on campus apartment. We had a rather large collection of unusual specimens. We had put them all out on the balcony/walk way in front of our apartment to get more sunlight. One summer afternoon we went with a few friends to see a movie and when we got back we found nothing left. They had all been stolen. I of course reported the theft to the campus police. Even though the dollar value made it a more serious crime, nothing ever came of it.
At one time we had a large garden, but time constraints put an end to that. Now we enjoy growing different varieties of hot peppers in either pots or the small flower bed attached to the back of our house.
