trying to turn my black thumb green....

Going green seems to be the catch phrase of the moment. In my own personal effort to “go green” I have started a container garden.

Now, gardening is something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve had some luck with flowers, but I’ve also killed my fair share of plants. I did a lot of research on container gardens and decided I was ready to take the plunge.

Sir and I went shopping and spent about $20 on pepper and tomato plants with some basil and lettuce seeds. I planted everything except the basil right away. So far, so good! I have a teensy little baby pepper on one plant and everything else is still alive! Yay me!

This is the test before we get the new house built. I’ve been asking for a garden and Sir has said I can have one. I figure I can handle it if I can get things to grown on my balcony. The difficult part is going to be deciding WHAT to grow! I’m not going to have a lot of space and keep thinking of more things to add to it. Strawberries, cucumbers, cantelope, peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, asparagus (for Sir, of course!), carrots, oh, my!

At least I have some time to plan it all out. And I’m more confident I won’t kill it all!
