OK - spikes it is. Good enough for me, anyway. I couldn't possibly expect to over-winter them outside in this climate.
So they'll both be indoors - if they make it, they nmake it - if they don't, they don't.
Something tells me they'll be ok, though.
Right now, the spike that I left outside, with the compost packed around it, is getting lots of rain.
If I can work between the raindrops tomorrow, I'll put it in the potting soil and bring it in tomorrow.
I never thought I'd feel this way, but I'm kinda' glad the season's coming to a close. I need to detach from the gardening.
There's other things I want to cultivate right now - some neighbourhood journalizing, travelling around the city a bit.
I'm going to enjoy raising my plants
indoors, of course - I always enjoy that - my twice a week watering, picking and trimming up. I love going out to the office and the lobby and tending to my plants
in the winter.
I like to sit in the office and meditate in their presence.
