I’m sure I have two thumbs.  But I’m not sure they’re green.  But I’m going to find out.  I’m not particularly handy or nurturing by nature, but I’ve always wanted to give a garden a go.  I want to watch my food grow!  So, with house in hand and idea in mind, I stumbled across a few blogs and websites, including the local Watch My Food Grow, and I got enough inspiration to make my own garden!

With some recycled materials (read: crap laying around the shed/yard), a lot of dirt, 3 seedling plants (2 tomato and 1 basil) and a handful of seed packets, this is what we made:

 

garden: 3 days

 

 

garden: 8 days

 

We even got our green on this weekend at Lake Worth’s First Annual Conservation Expo.  It was great to see this effort from the city, and I imagine it won’t be the last 🙂 While we were there, we even picked up a rain barrel from RainLife Rain Barrels, and the city is offering us a $30 credit!
