Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Secret Fortunes

One of my kids gave me this cute joke gift for Christmas. The can does say it is a real plant so that is a relief! Apparently a magic message that tells my forture is supposed to magically appear on a bean. Now this I have got to see! I don't know what others think but I'm very skeptical and you can be sure I won't be eating any of these beans.

The can is about 4 oz pop can size. On the bottom end there is the pull tab to let excess water into a plastic snap on protector. The entire top lid pulls off to reveal gorgeous vermiculite. The instructions said to water, drain and sit in a sunny winter to be rewarded with a plant in about 5 days. Well, I followed the instructions on Dec 27 but so far no plant or even sign of growth. The container does indicate the plant is a friend and is a male in need of love and care. Well all righty then. This year I might just as well be bad to see if Santa can bring me something a little more useful like a garden trowel!
