Gardening Log #1: A Purchase and the Start of Planting
Feya was in her usual spot tending to the plants that surrounded her. She was checking on her strawberry patch when she was unexpectedly disturbed by a gentleman that wandered into the garden looking to purchase a plot of earth to start his own personal garden. Happy to have an interested customer, she easily laid out the prices for the plots, the seeds, and even the money he would need to pay if he needed her to watch the plants for him. From there, the young woman would become quiet allowing the customer room to think and make a decision.
When the man finally made his decision and gave her the money for the purchase of a plot and even for her to watch his patch for him, she took note that the other did not purchase any seeds. A bit confused, she questioned the man about this only to receive a strange seed in turn. Examining the seed and finding it to be similar to a pumpkin seed, she wondered where the man had gotten such a thing from and in turn wondered what sort of plant it would become.
She could’ve questioned it, but did not as she instead accepted the seed with a smile as she gave the other a nod and promised to take good care of the plant while the man was away.
After this, she would collect the man’s name and needed information so that when the plant was done growing, she could contact him. Once that was done and she was left alone once more, the young woman would finish caring for her own plants before moving over to the patch she had marked as the rented lot for Gabe.
Moving the sign back a bit, she would begin clearing the spot of anything that would stop the seed from growing - small rocks, growing weeds, etc. Once the soil was clean, she would prep the patch making sure the soil there was rich and fertile. When she was satisfied with the prep work, she would set about making a hole for the seed and measuring its depth carefully. When the depth was just right she would insert the seed into the hole and then cover it up with the soil before using her watering can to give the plant some water and a start at growing. With that done, she would brush the soil off of her gloves and leave the seed to get settled. Now all she had to do was wait to see if the plant would start growing or not.
