It’s not that I’m not great at growing, I just haven’t had a lot of experience. I’ve grown a few things here and there, but until I moved the Okanagan, the growing season was always so short. This year is my year! I have a kid at home who is eager to grow things, and we have a challenge coming here at KISS-FM – Both of these are pretty motivating.
I found some pretty nifty succulents of my own thanks to the old Internet. Ivenoven is an artisan baker in Indonesia who makes these remarkable ‘ succulent cakes’ in a world that seems obsessed with ‘food that looks like other stuff.’ While I don’t think there is any way to grow desert, I sure wish I could, and that it could look like this.
So we are planning a friendly competition around the station to see who can grow the ‘best plant’ We’ve picked our seeds, we’ll get planting this week, and keep you posted – step-by-step through the whole thing.
In the meantime, enjoy gifs of things growing …
