So, my Facebook status this week is:
"We can complain because rose bushes have thorns or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses!"
This, gardening people, is my magic:
Garden magic will cost you:
$2000 a day for an 1800 mL bag
1 sick kid that relies on it for IV nutrition
nights without sleep
playing nurse and doctor with neither degree
a very foul odor in 104 degree sunshine
but, I've been pouring her leftovers every day on everything.
Another mom swears her tomatoes are...get this, prolific,
because she pours leftover TPN on them.
I questioned our home pharmacy about using
TPN in the garden. I was warned not to DARE using
it on houseplants for the foul odor that will emanate throughout!
THAT is making something good out of something horrible.
My garden looks terrible unattended for 4 weeks.
Bugs, critters, sun damage, heat damage, blah.
This is the best photo of my salvia I could manage today:
