Here's what I got...
a dirt pellet,
a cute container
becoming "growing medium."
As you can see, they're TALL
and they're going to fall over any minute now.
I have a stack of magazines that go back to October issues. I haven't had time to read my magazines since the beginning of October, but there's no way I'm throwing them out until I've read every last page and clipped all the articles and ideas that seem worth saving.
So I've been working on my Good Things Book.
in the December issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine.
"Paperwhites are a favorite for the season --
until they grow too tall and flop to one side.
To rein them in, root the bulbs in gravel
with a solution of 1 part rubbing alcohol
and 10 parts water.
They'll stop growing at about two-thirds their usual height."
In other words, next year I'm doing it Martha's way.
My sweet paperwhites aren't going to look so slick
when they fall over. Sigh...
