Been busy lately with family stuff… my little baby cousin is graduating from UCLA in a few weeks and we’re making a family video before we all converge on the Hotel Bel Air like the Beverly Hillbillies we are. I volunteered to do the video editing for this little project because I wanted to give myself a crash course… but… turns out the slick new Sony DVD Handycam my aunt, the graduate’s mother, bought isn’t compatible with the video editing program I bought, Adobe Premiere Elements. What on earth does this have to do with gardening, you say? Nothing, except one of the reasons I’m forcing all this new information into my brain is so I’ll be able to post gardening-related videos on the Garden Blog and SacGardening.com.
No videos yet, but let me just switch gears and say how pleased I am that my tomatoes are finally growing, well, except for one. My ‘Celebrity’ is still only 3 inches tall while all the rest are growing in leaps and bounds. I have no idea why. Ancient Indian burial ground?
I’m also soooooo excited because the Fairy Wand (Dierama) I brought back from the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens nursery is blooming!!! On top of that, an orchid cactus cutting a friend gave bloomed for the first time today. Specfriggintacular. As if that’s not enough, my sapliglossis ‘Royale Mix’ (grown from seed thank you very much) bloomed for the first time today.
I’ll post pics… someday soon, videos!!! Call your ISP now and order a faster internet connection so you’ll be ready for video. C’mon, you know you wanna…
