That burger I had last night, I mean. My stomach hurt when I got home. It's the next morning and I still feel have that "I ate something greasy, salty, icky" feeling. This is a good thing. My body is reminding me why I don't eat this way very often anymore.
On another, healthier, note: My neighbor received 50 strawberry seedlings yesterday and brought over a few for me. She was sucked in to buying them from an ad she received by e-mail some time ago. "AMAZING strawberries! As BIG as peaches!" it touts.
Not only do I have concrete for a yard, I also am totally clueless when it comes to growing anything. I have one plant in the house (besides these strawberries). It is an aloe plant and I worry about it every day. It is hanging in there but quite droopy. I don't know the first thing about growing strawberries. Can they be grown in a container? Full or partial sun? Is it too cold to bring them outside right now? She planted and brought them over in a smallish/ medium-size pot. There are three seedlings that look like they will get quite big. I will probably need to repot them. I'll be doing some research today, or maybe I'll call a nursery. If anyone knows how to grow them and could offer some tips, I would so appreciate it! :)
