My Island of Misfit Green Toys

It's not that people dump stuff on me.

It's more like I'm an orphanage for misfit green things. People want it the item to have a good home.

Case in point:

It's a menu from DC's
Sweet Green, embedded with wildflower seeds and ready for planting. A friend took one home because she thought it was cool ... but didn't want to plant it herself.

So she brought it to The Island of Misfit Green Toys. Which was fine, because The Green Miles is always happy to provide a good home.

I picked a spot outside my apartment that gets a reasonable amount of summer sun and dug a half-inch deep hole as instructed. I buried the menu and soaked the spot in water.

Is it an ideal spot? No, but that's not the point. Seed embedded paper isn't geared towards green thumbs with gardens -- it's geared towards people with a little available space.

I planted it on Sunday. No sprouts yet, but it's early. I'll let you know how it does!
