Houston, Perilous P has a Garden…

Pauline Baird Jones, writer, author, science fiction romance author, romantic suspense author, zombies, gardens

Isn’t it cute? Still working on filling the empty spots.

I finally have a garden! It’s so cute. All the plants kill zombies, which is really good to have with a possible zombie apocalypse on the way. (I know they won’t help, but I feel I can learn from their techniques…)

It’s not to everyone’s taste, of course, but I got my brains eaten several times earning some of those plants. It’s less stressful to buy them with coins you earn playing the game. And when the plants get big and you play music for them? They give you coins back. I even have a snail to collect coins in my main garden.

There is some upkeep. They need water, fertilizer, the occasional squirt from some bug spray and of course, the music. And what’s really cool about it? When I don’t water them for several days, they don’t get all pissy and droop, or turn brown. And I use the coins they spit out to buy the fertilizer, bug spray, and more plants.

It wasn’t my fault!

The cranky plants are so cute.

Squash= name & function

I can’t eat them, of course, but they help me fend off the zombies when I’m bored. Really hate getting my brains eaten.

Ouch.

I didn’t know I’d like having a garden. When I was little, my parents had a garden. I liked the veggies, but all the digging-during planting and weeding, and the mosquitos? Not so much. And then we moved to Texas where they have bigger weeds and mosquitos. Deep in my heart, I fear that I’m like those animals that wouldn’t help the Little Red Hen with anything but the eating.

But I’m not afraid to branch out. At first I couldn’t figure out why the lily pad and the mushrooms just slept all the time, but then I stumbled onto the water garden:

Doesn’t get dirty and nothing jumps out where you can accidentally step on it….

And mushroom garden:

These Shroom’s are not a zombies best friend, but my brain is grateful for them.

So, do you like to garden? What’s your perfect garden? Hate them? Hate zombies? I won’t judge, I promise. Got a plan for the apocalypse? Please share. And because I love to hear from you…

Perilously (and finally with a green thumb of sorts),
