Spring is just around the corner. Have you started planning your garden yet? I've got some sprouts started in the basement.
Truth? I most definitely do NOT have a green thumb.
It's pretty bad. "Eh, I'll water it later." That just about says it.
But this year I'm going to try REAL hard. Last year I successfully grew 2 cayenne pepper plants and 2 tomato plants. I had green beans too...but the twin baby bunny rabbits got to them. I'm pretty sure their mama got killed and I just didn't have the heart to tell the little orphans "no."
I also had some cucumber plants. We won't talk about those.
This year, I'm resolving to have a thriving garden. One thing I've learned is gardening takes a lot of trial and error. You'll be able to prevent a lot of that error by doing a little planning. So it's never too early!
I read The Backyard Homestead: Produce All the Food You Need on a Quarter Acre! and got a lot of information in a really "plain English" presentation. It's great for people like us with itty bitty yards.
