It's Friday!!!! Hey Gollum...Quick Question....


Okay kids...you know what this means!!!! IT'S FERTILIZER FRIDAY!!!!!
Grab your watering device...(can or hose) and your fertilizer, and head for the nearest plant... GO!
Houseplants, greenhouse crops, and gardens alike....get them moving!
Feed those plants...feed them and wake them up...make them grow and bloom and flourish!
You will be amazed at the difference a little fertilizer can make!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
I wonder if Feeding your Plants would count as Foodie Friday? Gollum? What do you think? Someone is eating...and I suppose I could post the recipe to mix it...lol

salmagundi said...

It counts as Foodie Friday. I'll do my usual fertilizing of the garden -- tell my husband to do it!!!! Actually, we are supposed to get more snow tomorrow, so I think he is planning to fertilize the lawn today before it is buried in snow. Sally

cindee said...

I got my supply of Miracle Grow yesterday(-: So off I go to fertilize the crops(-: lol
Happy Friday to you too!!!!

Dawnie said...

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Tootsie, You are so good at inspiring fellow gardeners to take care of their plants. I actually use a different method. But, yours works wonderfully. I did that for years. I can't wait to see your plants again. You are so good!
Hugs, Terrie

OK, I'm heading towards my mom's plants with a big bucket of fertilizer, cause Tootsie said to.
*GRIN* Have a GREAT weekend Tootsie*! _Ashley ~

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Cute post, Tootsie...I believe it qualifies as food.

Mimi said...

And, pray tell, what am I to fertilize, the snow in my yard? :)

Gollum said...

Feeding plants will definitely work!

Darla said...

Hi ya Tootsie, we are back and boy did it rain, our six inch gauge was topped off so there's not telling how much it rained, supposed to get more Sunday.........

Sassy said...

You are soooooooo much cuter than string tied around a finger to help remember things...THANK YOU....You're da bomb baby!!!

Bettys Everything said...

Tootsie, I have a problem with neighbor cats in my gardens, what can be done to keep them out, any suggestions? Betty

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Tootsie, I've think you've got something here! "Fertilizer Foodie Friday with fertilizer tea recipes!"

I use the sprinkle on type of stuff that last 6 to 12 weeks. What kind of fertilizer do you use?

☺♥☺ Diane

~♥~ Monica S said...

HAhah!! Funny!

You know.. I was just thinking I should buy new "dirt"? to put on my plants inside.. they need to get some new energy!

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

Nope, I'm sorry, but feeding your plants does not qualify you for Foodie Friday! LOL

Justine :o )

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

lol I think it counts! Like you said, someone is eating. I think I need to get some fertilizer for my african violet. It's starting to look a little sad to me. I need to cheer her up!

Chrissy said...

Your supposed to feed your plants????Oppps a daisy!!!

nikkicrumpet said...

I am so neglectful when it comes to fertilizing. My hubby always gets the lawn done...and I swear I'm going to do the bushes and flowers...but then I get lazy and never get around to it. I'm gonna have to for sure this year....I need somebody to hold my feet to the fire so I don't keep putting it off. How soon should I be putting the fertilizer on? Especially for my perrenials? Any tips?

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

I think it is a Foodie Friday post, as long as it comes with a warning that it's not for human consumption! laurie

Bo said...

Hi Tootsie...I know I'm really late...been out fertilizing, planting, weeding, raking, watering, etc., etc....LOL
You know the routine! Have a wonder filled week! ;-) Bo

Sounds great Tootsie!
I love Springtime! ;)

Just a quick hello girl, hope you are o.k.!!

Blue Eyed Tango said...

Oh my goodness how beautiful is your backyard!!!! Love your header photo! I need your help! I've posted my yard today on my blog for Outdoor Wednesday. We are still yet to see warm temps in our area but I'm bound and determined to get ahead on some of the yard planning. We're doing a "phase three landscaping" on our side yard and I would like some constructive advice on what we've already done and what we can do. We've done all the landscaping ourselves since we found out it was going to be around 30K to do what we wanted....nothing fancy either no pools, ponds etc...! Your #1 fan Lori sent me over to you and she will give some ideas as well! I would really appreciate low maintenance since this is really not what I want to send my time on this summer. I also have a corkscrew that evergreen that is NOT doing well! I did fertilize at the end of the season but it still is continuing to lose the needles. Of course the warranty is over now! It was expensive to buy and I don't want to have to buy another! LOL! Thanks! I'll add your blog to mine! Be back for sure! Lu

Happy Easter Tootsie~! Do you still have snow? We do!...Melting as I write this ..they say it may be 50 today!....I bought one of those flower kits at Walmart...I am going to start growing impatients....wish me luck! (I'm gonna need it)

The Stylish House said...

Tootsie,
Oh my so glad you mentioned watering. I have a plant tucked away in my guest room I always forget about and it is thirsty. ~Cathy~

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Hi Tootsie, we are having so much rain here, it's awful ! Everything is going to rot if it doesn't stop soon .

Fieldstone said...

I truly believe I'm seeing a difference this spring after being under the influence of Tootsie! The euphorbia is in full bloom. White hyacinths, too. However, having had an unusually harsh winter, there is much repair in store for us. We were away last weekend, so we'll start in on it tomorrow! Happy Easter, Pam

Rue said...

Hi Tootsie :)

I think it counts! LOL

Happy Easter :)
hugs,

Momof3 said...

Thanks for the reminder Tootsie. We feed them steer manure-what's your recipe?
