I decided to try my hand at gardening. My mom always seemed to have a green thumb, but for many years, I felt that the talent was not handed down to me. Anytime I decided to purchase plants, I could almost swear I heard them screaming out to others, "Please save us!!!"
Thankfully, things are coming along fine. I have tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, pepperoncini, squash, various herbs, and cucumbers. I'm so tickled!!! A small garden, nonetheless, but it's a start. The veggies taste delicious in my salads.
I also have a Money tree, Mass Cane plant, a small Rainbow Bush, cute little sticky cactus, and various flowers. I have 2 rose bushes.....one of them I will share in this post. My plants are still alive and thriving! Can you believe it??! *giggles* I'm going to keep it up with hopes that I will get better at it each year.
Here are a couple of books that I purchased to help me along the way.
The Organic Fruit and Vegetable Gardener's Year - A seasonal guide to growing what you eat
Easy Container Combos: Vegetables & Flowers
Do you enjoy gardening? If so, I could use any tips that you provide! If you have a garden, PLEASE post a link to your blog, website, or photo gallery. I would enjoy the inspiration!!! I live in a condominium, and there is not much land for outdoor gardening, so if you could share info about gardening in small areas or even patio gardening I would truly appreciate it!!! Another question....what do you have the most success in planting during the fall?
