I envy people who have a green thumb. I kill everything. Bonsai, dead. Flowers, dead. Herbs, dead. Ivy, dead. Cactus (that I was told CANNOT be killed), dead. You see my point.
When I started making my list, I thought about some things that would challenge me. A garden? Perfect. If I can get something to bloom, and actually eat it, wow thats an accomplishment for me.
I bought some seeds.
And planted them in starter soil (my term, not theirs)
Once they budded (Is that a word?), I moved them to the garden.
To my surprise, my seeds grew.
And a little while later, produced this,
I used radishes in a salad, with some cilantro and lettuce that was also grown, and I grilled up some squash for dinner.
I say this is a success, and my brown thumb is slowly turning green.
