Gardening

Remember awhile back when I decided to try my hand at gardening? Let's just say it's a good thing I started out small. All three plants died. I would like to defend myself and say that while I was out of town Caleb forgot to water them, but truth be told they weren't looking to good before I left. 

I'm not sure why, but I decided to try again. I have it in my mind that I better learn how to do this so that if we ever do move out to the coutry and I could actually have a real garden and I wouldn't kill it all. 

I tried herbs this time. Someone told me I might have a better shot with them. 

So here we go again...



I even planted some flowers to put in front. 


And in two days they looked like this...


I wish I could say they look this good now, but I think one of our neighbors keeps watering them for me...and they've drowned.


She kept me company while I planted and I couldn't help but show you all how cute she is.



By some miracle my tree has survived. I really don't know how. By all counts it should be dead, but it's alive and even has blosoms.


See, I might actually have a tangelo this year.

I love your basket your herbs are planted in! Yes, you can overwater plants. (I've don't it many times.) Herbs are pretty easy and so worth it! Good luck!:)

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your herbs are looking great! As for tips, my husband and grandpa say it's all about the soil. You can't grow anything good if the soil they are in isn't great. If left to myself, I always plant things in too small of containers and don't leave much room for their roots to grow - so my husband taught me to plant things in containers 3x the size of the plant. Oh, and yes, you can water too much! I've done it.

Good luck with your herbs! They are looking great.
