I believe that behind every successful person, there is a role model, a teacher, a mentor, a kind, caring person who said: "Do this, don't give up, I believe in you!" #TeachingTuesday

I spotted this cute fuzzy #JumpingSpider hanging out on a #Basil leaf while I was watering this morning, and I could not resist this perfect #PhotoOp. Jumping Spiders are my favorite #Arachnids. A few minutes later I noticed that this cutie was only one of a pair, but the other #Spider was moving too quickly to catch on camera.
I was watering the leafy greens and herbs in my #GardenTower2 this morning and discovered that some #Marigold seeds had scattered themselves on the ground in front of my tower. I carefully collected all that I could find and then got to work plucking all the dead flower heads before more seeds were spread. While searching through the big bushy plants popping with bright gold and deep orange blossoms, I discovered this tiny pale baby #GardenSpider. It already has stripey legs! So cute.
I collected so many seeds! This process definitely made me feel the energies of #VirgoSeason as I broke open the dried flowers and let all those little seeds fall into my bag. My marigolds did so well, and I love the mix of colors, but for a "dwarf" variety, the plants are much larger than is practical for the #GardenTower. They threw too much shade for some of my herbs. So I think next year I will plant them in a separate planters set around the tower, and hopefully they will provide the same level of pest repellance even if they aren't sharing the same soil... #FirstTimeGarden#LearningAsIGo#GardenTowerProject
