Ten Questions for Pamela Price of Red, White and Grew

Pamela Price of Red,White and Grew is someone I have elevated to the level of "co-conspirator" in my life. And it really doesn’t get much better than that.
I met Pamela on Twitter and then we became Facebook chat friends- and then there’s the famous podcast where we interviewed her and she admitted openly that the phone interview wasn’t enough to keep her attention so she was violently scrubbing things clean as we spoke. And you can hear it.
We are cut from similar cloth, but mine is way tackier.
The interview:

KMA: What is your favorite horticultural word?

PP: Seed, because it can be both a noun and a verb.

KMA:. What is your least favorite horticultural word?

 PP: Chlorophyll. Saying it makes my throat choke up.

KMA: What about plants turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?

PP: I love all flowers and flowering plants. This comes, I think, from my mother who worked as a floral designer for awhile. Then again, my grandfather wrote about English roses while training for WWI. 

KMA:. What about plants turns you off?

PP: That they don’t all grow everywhere.

KMA: What is your favorite curse word you use when a plant dies?
PP: My go-to curse word these days, with a small child at home, is "sweet cheeses."

KMA: What sound or noise, in relation to gardening, do you love?

PP: Raking is pretty nice.

KMA: What sound or noise, in realtion to gardening, do you hate?

PP: Anything with a loud motor. 

KMA: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

PP: I’d like to be a screenwriter.

KMA: What profession would you not like to do?

PP: Fire jumping. 

(KMA thinks Pamela secretyl desires to be a fire jumper, whatever that is)

KMA: If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

PP: "Nice work!"

You can check Pamela out in a plethora of ways- at Red, White & Grew, Dig For Texas or at MySA.com, where she writes about all kinds of cool stuff. I’m going to go and Google "fire jumping" now.
Find me.
