Petunia Hanging Basket
I grabbed some potting soil and headed for the check out. It happened to be another cloudy day so my picture is not the best and the weather has not cleared up much since then. The flowers look a little blue here, but are in fact a very deep purple petunia.
I came home and got everything set up for the little monster to play in dirt. No gloves needed here. We like to get messy. He filled the basket half way for me since dirt is his friend. I took out the small petunia, spread out the bottom roots a little, then had him push the dirt around a little. Last we topped off the basket with potting soil. He had to move the soil around a little more just because it feels funny and then again after we watered the thing.
His hands were black, so he figured he had worked really hard and did a great job. The next part I would not recommend, but hey we did because we can. I put the basket on a waste high table, put my kid there too. I let him climb on my shoulders so he could hang it himself. It was painful but amusing. He loved it. My boobs did not after all the kicking.
I am thinking that next time I will buy some cute little hooks and drill them into the wall. Who doesn't love to use a power tool anyway? I think I need one more basket so that is the plan for this weekend.
