Gardening

It seems like Andrew and I are getting a little stir crazy. It might be from summer starting and we are getting anxious for our trips to Oregon or it might be from living in the city for too long and we aren't city people. Either way, we are a little crazy; I mean, we are attempting to start a garden in our kitchen.

Last week Jana asked me what I do for fun in SF. Well, Jana, Andrew and I look at plants and flowers and talk about which ones we could grow when we have property. Then we think, why couldn't we grow them now? We have amazing windows and our current plants thrive here. So we end up buying seeds, potting soil, and a couple pots to (hopefully) grow our lettuce, spinach, and tomatoes once they sprout. Yes, we are going to attempt growing tomatoes indoors. 






A few days after we planted the seedings I saw a pineapple plant when I was shopping. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to grow a pineapple. I love pineapple. So... I walked home with a crazy looking pineapple plant and ignored the double-takes that people passing me did. Once I was asked what it was and I had to explain but I didn't care, I'm going to have pineapple!

  1. Oh my word! I didn't know pineapple plants looked like that. That is quite possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen!!!

  2. Hahaha! Only you would buy a pineapple plant, Rachel! :) Mmm, I do love pineapple, too, though! But they are rather large for growing indoors...how big will that plant become?
