Green thumb?

As has often happened in the springtime, I recently got excited to try and turn my thumb green by growing some fruits & veggies. The stores have such great sales and make gardening look easy!

It started a few weeks ago at Target... the $1 section had little packets of seeds, dirt and pots for tomatoes and basil, all for just $1. So I gave it a try... and look at my little seedlings!!



Then at Walmart, I saw this:

For only $7! How could I pass that up?! Think of all the homegrown tomatoes we'll get from it, right? The seeds that came with this kit are... not doing so well. I planted them like 2 weeks ago and they're not sprouting at all!! I've been watering them and everything. I think I'll have to buy some more seeds :(

THEN, we moseyed on over to the garden section, where I decided I HAD to have a raspberry plant for only $5.

I planted it on the side of our yard where it's pretty sunny most of the day.

Let's see how long this green thumb thing lasts.

Beware! Gardening is addictive! We started our first garden 6 years ago and it's just gotten bigger every year. There is really nothing better than fresh tomatos and fresh green beans from the garden. It's the best!

Just a warning about raspberries, they take a while to really get started. It could be a few years before you get actual raspberries on your plant, but it will be worth it when it happens! Good luck.
