This year I decided I was going to grow a garden. This is a huge deal for me because I can't keep plants alive for anything. Every single plant I've ever owned has died on my. I've killed a calla lily, a Christmas cactus, and a spider plant.
So what made me think that I could grow garden plants? I'm not really sure. I just love fresh produce and I can never make it to the farmers market. So I guess a garden is the next best thing. Right?
I have narrowed my plants down to the ones that I can make salsa out of. I have a Roma tomato plant, a green pepper plant, a hot pepper plant, a number of different herbs. Maybe next year I'll try a few more plants.
So so far so good. The tomato plant is just growing like crazy. It's easily three times the size of when I bought it. And all the herbs have sprouted. Yeah.
I'm so excited about this. Like I said before, I can't keep a plant living to save my life. So hopefully I'll be able to keep these plants living, and before long, I'll actually have some veggies to show for it.
