You Have A Point

A couple of years ago, we went on a 24-day family vacation out West.  Matt excitedly purchased cactus seeds to grow when we got home.  We planted those seeds and waited.  And waited.  And waited.  Finally, a little teeny tiny cactus started growing.

Then the just-walking little girl of a friend stayed with us for a couple of hours.  She proudly (and quickly) came running into the kitchen with the cactus that Matt had been growing for months.  The upside-down cactus.  Ooops.

When Matt left to visit his dad later that next summer, Mackenzie and I came up with a plan.  We bought a teeny tiny, already grown a bit, cactus in a teeny tiny pot.  We put that pot on the window sill and waited for Matt to return from his summer away.  We told him that his cactus had a growth spurt while he was away.  He almost believed us.


This imposter cactus was repotted last year.  I can't believe how much it has grown.  It's probably close to 4" high now.  Must be my amazing gardening skills.
