I am always ambitious and the happiest soaking up the sun so this time of the year I always try out my green thumb aka black thumb of death!
One year I planted a huge garden and when the weeds started coming in and it got to be 100 degrees out this girl just couldn't do it. I begged and bribed and my kids and they were not even willing to help for money or gifts.
I have killed every poor plant I have ever had after a few months. The african violet in window sill was beautiful when only Barry took care of it. As soon as I started it just curled up and died. It probably did't help that while I was "pulling" off the dead leaves instead of cutting them that I broke it off the root. whoops....
Then the rubber tree that can survive anything lost the last of its 2 leaves and now looks like I stuck a twig in dirt. hmmm.... I am not sure why, but this last month I have been really dedicated and I think my thumb has a few streaks of green running through it!!

Plus its getting nice enough to get our fish pond looking pretty again so we have all been spending our afternoons outside.
I am even working on a little garden in pots for easier maintenance. However I think a squirrel or something ate my little cabbage blooms...not my fault that time and I will share some pictures when they start looking pretty. So far I have tomatoes, purple bell peppers and jalepeno peppers. I am not sure how to grow squash in a pot, but I want to plant some okra and cucumbers along the fence. I am trying to keep myself in check.
Oh another note I love the dollar tree especially the new one close to Ocala. With everything being a dollar and so much cute stuff for outside I go crazy in there!! Here are a few cute things I found the other day.
|That's about 5-6 pounds and costs I think about $20+|
