Good To Grow, Liza's photos, Chayote dreams


Good To Grow, Liza's photos, Chayote

Oh, Chayote, how I’ve missed you. I will not give up on you! I’ll keep trying to grow you until I succeed!

(Or until continuing to fail gets ridiculous.)

Not because I successfully grew them last year, but because I went and bought new ones recently, haha!

If you thought – or hoped – I’d given up the quest to grow Chayote squash, I have not. I will not be deterred by pesky failures in the past. Nope, not me. I won’t stop until I’ve grown ugly little fruits of my own.  Victory will be mine! (Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, I keep saying that!)

First, they need to sprout though. The waiting game has begun!

I’ll be back tomorrow. The Experts are still on break for a little bit longer, but we’ll have some plant puzzler action for you.

You still have time to guess the current puzzler, in which I asked if this Wisteria was real or fake:

Good To Grow, real or fake plant puzzler

Leave your best guess in the comments section. The deadline is tonight at midnight MST (that’s 2am EST). I’ll reveal the answer and the winner(s) tomorrow. Hope to see you back here.

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
