It’s officially cold-weather time. Two days ago mom and I brought in all the plants. All the jade plants, anyway. But then again…the jade plants are pretty big, as they are at least 20 years old, and we have a somewhat small house. (And then of course there are all the little “jadlings”!)
I love the kitchen being packed with plants. (Especially when it’s cold outside and something hot is cooking inside, and the windows get all steamy. It feels so cozy.) 🙂
And, for the first time ever, some of the old jade plants are developing some kind of buds!? I had no idea they did that…I can’t wait to see if they bloom soon!
One of the many things on my winter to-do list (haha!) is learn more about plants and gardening–mainly herb and vegetable gardening. I have been reading Mother Nature’s Herbal by Judith Griffin, and it has proved to be a very enjoyable book. It not only has information on how to grow and use herbs, but also recipes from a wide variety of cultures and the folklore surrounding each particular herb. I’ve only been reading a little bit at a time, though, and usually when I’m too tired to concentrate. I definitely need to give it a better look…
