Gardening was not originally part of the Jordana Project. Mostly because I REALLY suck at it, and it's going to take a LOOOONG time to get good at it. And I don't really care too much. Now, I would love to have a nice lush "garden" on the balcony. But I'm not sure it's in the cards for us.
(A) the space is small
(B) it gets DIRECT afternoon sun. So hot that the candle wax melts, the plants die and it is totally and completely disgusting between 3 and 8 pm.
(C) I have a habit of forgetting to feed things that can't yell at me to be fed.
It's looking so incredibly sad out there, I decided to rip it all out and replant. It was necessary. For the third time this year.
These are the "before" shots. Later, there will be "after" shots. The "after" is much greener. And less sad.
Gardening gets added to the project. I'm hoping to grow fewer dead things :-)
