Green Thumb

In all my life I’ve never been accused of having a green thumb. I can kill anything. Seriously. My mom gave me a pot with succulents and told me that they need very little water and that I couldn’t kill them…

…and well, I killed them.

I think I forget that plants are a living thing and have needs, like water, to not only thrive but survive period.

So I decided that this year will be different! I have planted a tiny garden and potted flowers and it’s my summer goal to keep them alive.

Check out my flowers. Aren’t they pretty? I love lillys.

I also planted some vegetables in a barrell. Now I realize that I probably way over planted my barrell but it’s my experiment and I won’t go so crazy next year. I just got super excited over all the things I thought I could grow when I was browsing Home Depot!

I planted tomatoes, peas, cucumbers and banana peppers. Yes in one barrell. I warned ya, I went overboard. But check out how well it’s doing weeks later!!

AND wait for it…

I officially have a pepper. I grew something you guys! 🙂

The tomatoes are coming!

I love my yard this time of year. It’s beautiful.

My plan is to start my day with coffee on my back porch this summer. 4 more days and I get to slow down with my boys and enjoy our yard even more. 🙂
