    Boy, I don’t know! I know how to sing, but I wish it would sound good! I’ll follow the pack on this one. 🙂

      Just get a bag of potting soil, place it in an area that gets (minimum) six hours of sunlight a day, cut a hole in the plastic bag, plant your plant directly in the potting soil and water.

        your talking about the cucs right?I mentioned that to hubby yesterday actually and no way will he go for a bag just sitting there.He’s bringing in different dirt for my raised garden.SO,I will give it one more attempt this year.My frustration now is seeing all the perennials we planted last year,they dont look good BUT it is still early up here so Im told to give it some time yet.They just look all dead to me.Sure wish i had my Mom,she was an awesome gardener!

          If you use weed n feed on your lawn it can kill things in you’d beds.

          Make sure you use wood that wont leach chemicles into the soil fir your raised beds.

            we dont use that on the lawn and the beds are made with cedar so I think they are fine.I think the key for me is to find a good balance with watering.They never stayed very wet,that soil dried out so fast.Im hoping that will change after mixing different soil in.We shall see!

    I can’t believe I missed this one. I can sing, I just don’t do it much, and certainly not on a stage. But I can carry a tune rather well.

    What I WISH I could do is skate. Like professional Figure Skating skate. And Irish Dancing. I know I could probably learn the dancing fairly easily, if I could find a place to take lessons, but my real desire is to be able to get out and skate like Michelle Kwan (ok, almost nobody can be that good, but you get my meaning)

    Read? I first read this as “a talent you have but wish you didn’t.” Now wouldn’t that have been an interesting question to answer?

    OK, so, a talent I wish I had. I’m relatively good at learning languages, but I wish I was “really” good at it, so I could be fluent in many and just putz around the world without the handicap of language barriers.

    Sometimes I wish I had a developed athletic talent, but then I look at how much work goes into it even if you’re a “natural,” and I sey “meh.” Same for music. I’ll stick with my amateur piddling around.

    Sometimes I wish I had the gift of gab / BS. It would probably save me a lot of stress, and possibly some work. Might even make me more money (so I could pay more tax). But I don’t lose sleep over it at this point in my life. There was a time, though, that this was a real frustration.
