Gardening without a Green Thumb

Some people are good with plants, and some people aren’t. I fall into the latter category. Oftentimes it’s joked that I have a Brown Thumb, the exact opposite of the Green variety. 

Nevertheless, it’s been a few years since we had our balcony garden and I’m determined to be a big part of it this year!!! 

Starting with the seeds! We had a bunch of kinds from before, but I thought that we could mix it up a bit and add some new vegetables. This year we’re planting beans, carrots, cucumbers, buttercrunch lettuce, 2 kinds of tomatoes, baby watermelons and strawberries! Hopefully by the end of the summer we have a nice little harvest, because there is nothing like fresh vegetables that you grew yourself! 

I also bought some little peat pots to start the seeds in, some potting soil and plant food. Figuring out what to get was more difficult than you would think. 

Don’t forget, I’m not so good with plants. 

Hunter was excited to help at first; then he figured out that there’s more to gardening than he thought, and promptly peaced the fuck out. 

Thanks again, kid. This is all very reminiscent of the Egg House. 

Look at them all!!!

It took a while, but there are now​ 46 peat pots with seeds planted in them on our kitchen shelves!!! 

No joke, that is the most gardening I have ever done at once! 

Now we wait.
