Today I am going to plant most of my garden. I picked up the potting mix, and a number of plants yesterday on my way home.
I used to think I had a black thumb, but then after a few years of struggling with a garden, I realized that I can grow things I just have to pay attention. I am a mom for heaven sake. If I can raise 3 boys and manage 13 grandchildren, I can tend to a few tomato plants. All the dead house plants over the years gave me a little bit of pause, But then I realized that if I pay attention the plants tell you what they need. So after a few years of hit and miss, I have consistently gotten some results. Last year we did not buy any tomatoes during growing season. I was able to produce all we needed to consume and even give away a few. I am hoping to be at least that successful this year, and maybe get a few strawberries and some squash as well.
Here goes nothing? everything? Well maybe somewhere in between that. I will keep you posted on my progress.
