Finding My Green Thumb

My first little garden. A cactus tests my gardening ability, so we're starting small and seeing what works.

Next year I may be promoted to my own plot in the yard.

Upside down tomato planter...M's handiwork

Already have some jalapenos bustin' out

These little guys are destined to be red bell peppers

Basil explosion. I foresee some homemade pesto on this week's menu.

Have a green thumb? Whatcha growing this year?


  1. You have some beautiful plants there! I was really looking forward to having a nice big garden at our house, but then we moved to WV...we have a couple plants on our deck, but I don't think they are going to be nearly as successful as yours. I don't think they are getting enough sun.

  2. I'm psyched something is actually growing already. Hopefully they'll survive the summer.
    We had the same problem with sunlight, and cut down a bunch of trees in our yard this past winter.

    I'd love to get some berries more herbs going next year. Those are best eaten organic and even the conventionally grown stuff is pricey.
