Spruce Tree Seedling
Last month I was in Target picking up some stuff to add to my nephew's giant birthday grab-bag gift box monster that I was creating. When I was browsing around the $1 section at the front of the store they had little "grow your own tree" things with tiny little pots, some soil and norway spruce seeds. I have a history of wanting to grow plants that are way too big for my tiny Brooklyn apartment. This blog began when I tried to grow a pumpkin in a small pot on my terrace. The pumpkin vine eventually grew like 8 feet, started wrapping around and climbing up my hanging ivy plant and giving my roommates nightmares that our apartment was turning into the movie Troll. Clearly, I have not learned my lessoned. I planted a couple of seeds a few weeks ago and now I have a little Norway Spruce seedling popping up. I'm pretty sure that this will grow slowly enough that I can manage it in the apartment for a year or so. Hopefully, by then Chris and I will be moving on to greener pastures in the mythical land of homeowning.
