I'm currently pretty far from that dream, but I'm in training.
See when I first moved into my apartment, the previous tenants & friends of mine had to make one promise to me... that they wouldn't begrudge me when their whole garden died. I have the furthest thing from a green thumb & the garden I inherited was planted by Mother Nature herself. Seriously when I moved in all the neighbors stopped over to say hi & to make sure I was going to keep the garden, it's like a community landmark. So it's time that this girl learns a thing or 2 about working with the earth.
Here's what I've learned so far from my training...
- Things that have spikes, grow from under the sidewalk, & strangle other plants are definitely weeds.
- Bushes need no assistance. I like bushes. We're friends.
- A few accessories in bright colors go a long way.
- Even a so-so garden from a very inexperienced gardener turns brick into a little oasis.
And for the first time EVER... I have a fresh bouquet from my garden!
So I'm figuring it out. And someday when I have that dream house I won't have to start from scratch because I'll have all these years of gardening experience. Next year: Mission Veggies.
Hey green-thumbed friends, any words of wisdom?
