A few weeks ago as I was walking in to Target, this very nicely dressed preppy woman grabbed my arm and wouldn't let go. She pulled me over to car - which happened to be a Cadillac Escalade with a monogram. Okay so I'm no longer quite so freaked out. How bad can a woman with a monogram be?
She then starts talking. The general idea of her tirade is that we all need to take care of the environment and go green. I buy that.
I use my collapsible basket at the grocery store.
I don't litter.
She goes on for a few solid minutes about the horrors of the earth and how awful we as a a human race are for not being greener. Mind you - she never gives specific tips for going green. She doesn't say people should use refillable water bottles instead of always carrying around a Fiji. She doesn't talk about recycling. She doesn't give any specifics at all. She just keeps repeating that we should all go green.
She then hands my a pot. Really a pot? What does this have to do with going green? And a bag of oregano seeds.
I think she might be confused on exactly what go green means.
Although I am actually trying to grow my oregano. I figure why not - it was in a sealed bag. So here is my question: What am I doing wrong? My oregano isn't soing well. I know it needs water (check), 8 hours a day of sunlight (check), decent soil (check), a pot (check) -- what am I missing? I normally do really well with plants and have my sunroom full of potted beauties, but this oregano isn't healthy!
