Crimes against my garden







I am not really a bitter person, however, I will talk about what an asshole my last landlord was until I die. And it's not even really his fault... That he was so incredibly stupid. Firstly, he just didn't get perennials. If they aren't in bloom, they are a weed... And he'd wait until I wasn't home and he'd spray them with Roundup or just yank them out. Then he told me that I could no longer have containers on our huge wood deck- or patio furniture for that matter- because he did not find ours up to snuff (and it's super cute, I'll show you!). Then he THREW MY COMPOST HEAP AWAY WHEN I WAS AT WORK. I can hardly deal with that now... Then he proceeded to waterproof the sidewalk that ran through the garden- washing all sorts of chemicals into my herbs and roses. And what's the point of a waterproof sidewalk anyway?? So- I ended up losing about $400 worth of plants between what he killed and what I killed by breaking our lease and moving that stuff during a drought. Good news is- my current landlords are saints! Here's my old garden, in the spring a while back...
