Re: spider mites/curttings

Cathy, Pam,
Thanks, but I AM lazy....and I like it that way.

Growing up, my sister, Pat, was 18 mos older and we shared a room.  There's
a picture of us in our pajamas standing next to our twin beds.  You could
bounce a quarter off her bed; her pajama top was tucked in and she's
standing straight as an arrow.  then there's me - with the rumpled bed
clothes, pajamas askew, leaning against the headboard.  I always was the
lazy one.

My garden is my haven.  Working in it IS being lazy, as other things don't
get done.  And if things don't get done in the garden, it's really ok.  Some
years I even forget to fertilize - at all.  So this year I reversed things.
Instead of waiting to fertize until after all new plants were in, when it's
way late, for the first time ever, I spread about 40 pounds of organic
fertilizer (Brent & Becky's cricket poop base fertilizer) on everything
(bulbs, shrubs, everything) in early April.  It does seem to have helped.

My garden will never be on a tour, but it's comfy and lazily tended.
