Gardening is not only a great way to relax, it also acts as a stimulus to the brain. You not only need green fingers, you need an active & inquisitive mind.

No, I’m not referring to a property number on an address like Rockefeller Plaza or an asteroid in the Oort Cloud or any place else for that matter. I’m referring to a little stone I’ve just discovered and named.

No, I’m not bonkers yet, but I am working on it each and every day. Here’s the little rock in question.

This is all to do with my attempt at cataloging my planted seeds as described in my previous post on the subject of gardening by numbers.You see I can mark up all my seed trays and tubs with numbers, but you can’t do the same with soil unless you want a garden full of little plastic strips that break up over time and cause a lot of damage to the environment. So, Rock 15 will be ‘planted’ alongside seeds or plants so that I can look up on my list exactly what it is I planted there. Of course, as it stands, Rock 15 will be joined by a number (no pun intended) of other little numbered rocks scattered throughout my garden.

You see, gardening isn’t a boring pastime for old folk. Gardening Rocks!
