HOWEVER, if you have pets, please check and make sure that what you are buying isn't toxic to them.  Philodendron, peace lily, spider plants, and some herbs are poisonous to animals.  YIKES!


💥Lol @RosemaryF433825 no pets or kids, just spiders - hope those plants are toxic for them. 🤣😂 💥

💥Lol, @RosemaryF433825 handle a spider. Girl I do not want to be up close and personal with them. 🤣😂 I use my shoe or broom to swat them. Then spray them as I have learn't they pretend to be dead, then get up and run for cover. 😱 Next, out comes my long-handled (note, long/lol) dust pan with a tiny Dollar Tree broom (also long handled), sweep up my victim/lol and flush down my toilet. 😁 Angela💥

I don't know but spider plant is reputed to be a good air cleaner.

However, I know as fact that an inexpensive negative ion generater removes smoke from the air.  Unfortunately, the smoke is deposited on walls and furniture.

Thanks @aruzinsky 😁 I will try the Spider Plant.

According to Boeckmann, the easiest vegetables to grow are lettuce, green beans, peas, radishes, carrots, cucumbers, kale, Swiss chard, beets and zucchini.  🌱

According to Boeckmann, is tomato a fruit instead of a vegetable?  I ask because tomato is the most popular homegrown food crop.  And, whereas there is little difference in taste between homegrown and store bought " lettuce, green beans, peas, radishes, carrots, cucumbers, kale, Swiss chard, beets and zucchini," homegrown tomatoes taste much better than store bought tomatoes.  And the difference between homegrown and store bought tomato juice is even greater.  That is why tomato is the most popular home grown food crop.

Birth Month Flowers for June: rose and honeysuckle 

A bouquet of roses mean sincere gratitude, whereas a single rose amplifies the meaning of the color (I.e. a single rose means “I love you”). The other June flower is honeysuckle, which is a strong symbol for the everlasting bonds of love.  (Farmer’s Almanac )  🌸

We just planted honeysuckle ! Excited to see it grow.

Cacti are a plant that will tell you when they need water....so until they beg...don't give them any...

If you get them at a garden center 99.9% chance that they were greenhouse raised so there will be an adjustment to outdoors....sometimes they will get sunburned because they have had indirect or filtered sun.

Birth Month Flowers:

May - lily of the valley & hawthorn

The lily of the valley signifies sweetness, humility and a return to happiness.

The other May flower is the hawthorn plant, which represents hope and supreme happiness. Hawthorn signifies that you want only the best for the recipient. (Old Farmer’s Almanac)  🌺

Believe it or not, a lot of the weeds you're pulling up and tossing are edible and nutritious. If you want to learn more about your garden's wild foods, check out the presentation I'll be giving for Urban Harvest: https://www.urbanharvest.org/stec_event/foraging-weeds-garden/

Save money, save time, eat weeds. 🙂
