Cryss's Beanstalk

I've been raising plants indoors again, not as many as that one winter I nearly drove Mat crazy because I had the dining room almost completely full of planting pots. It probably wouldn't have been so bad if the cat hadn't been acting out and using the planting pots as a litter box. I didn't grow any plants inside last year because of it. 'Phoenix the Warrior Nun' has settled down a little bit over the last couple years though, so as the weather from cold to hot and back again, I've decided to play with plant life.

I planted the veggies a couple weeks apart from one another for a slightly staggered growth, this will prolong the harvest season. I also still plan on starting many plants outdoors, when the ground is warm enough.

The bean plants growing on my kitchen window sill are a couple weeks behind the one pictured above. If you look outside my kitchen window you will see two pallets, those pallets will be lush with life in a couple months. I can hardly wait! I will be putting a 50/50 ratio of potting soil and native soil in the pallet beds. You know, as a grown woman, I still possess a very vivid imagination. I picture that I'm the giant at the end of the beanstalk. Except, I would gladly share my golden eggs with you Jack (or Jill). The hen stay here though... after all, she likes it here.
