Strawberry Saturdays: Cindy Is IntroducedPosted: September 1, 2012
This is Cindy. I spotted her while wandering around the flower market in Amsterdam and knew immediately that she had to join the Fooducated family.
But I ran into a problem (after smuggling her across the border and then from NY to STL) almost immediately. The package said “see instructions inside” but look at the inside:
They sell you a growing, living thing and then expect you to just figure it out! To make it worse, they lie and say they’ll explain it but then only give you these vague pictures:
What’s NPK?? Whatever it is, Cindy isn’t getting that. I’m already failing as a strawberry grower.
I’m also worried because the same stand was selling pots that claim to grow banana trees.
But I can only do my best. I’ll water her every day and say a few encouraging words but, ultimately, the way she grows, and whether or not she grows, is up to her.
Come back on Saturdays to read about how Cindy is doing.
