Brown Thumb vs. Green Thumb

Published September 6, 2016 by Malia

Ever since I got married, I’ve wanted to grow some of our food.  Unfortunately, my thumb is pretty brown.  Which means that my efforts over the last two springs were quite pathetic.  I think I successfully grew a single green bean and one tiny tomato.  After this past spring, I shelved my dreams of growing food.  Then, about a month ago the boy was playing a podcast and they were discussing various gardening options.  (Know How)  

So, I’m not shelving that dream quite yet.  Let me introduce you to the beginning of my new garden.

These are the smallest Aero Garden units you can get.  I’m using the red to grow salad greens, and the blue to grow herbs.  I’m so excited about this.  No dirt to mess with, which I am perfectly fine with.  Plus, I can do all of this inside, avoiding sunburn and bug bites.  

If this first round goes well, I’m planning to get more units so I can grow berries, peppers, tomatoes, and other awesome foods!
