"It’s just a phase" they said.
"You don’t know anything about gardening" they said.
"You’ll never grow anything." they said.
Yesterday my mum told me she thought my windowsill greenhouse was beautiful and she’d gotten used to it being a feature of our kitchen. But they were right, I am a horticultural half-wit. I don’t know what PH my soil’s supposed to be or when to sow things to ensure the best harvest. But at the end of the day that doesn’t matter, I decided on the spur of the moment to give something totally new a go and now the oxygen levels in our kitchen must be about double what they were.
So yeah, next time you’re passing a 49p seeds rack in Morrison’s just think, ‘what’s the worst that can happen’ and if someone at home tells you you’ve wasted your money just ask them if they consider 49p a high price to discover a new hobby and breathe cleaner air, I doubt they’d say yes. Happy planting :)
