Welcome to our journey. The purpose of my blog is not only to journal our life experience, but also to share what God is doing in our lives. I do not claim to be an expert in parenting, marriage, or even the Bible. But I do have a heart to share my experiences and the true love that God has for each and every one of us.

A Green Thumb I do NOT have!

Gardening 101 000 is maybe what I need?

I am so not a gardener.  I know almost nothing about it.  I try to garden but basically, I stink! 

Ok...so this week we are going to start our garden indoors.  Hopefully, to get a head start and have lots of vegies this year.  Last year,

here's what we planted...        and here's how they turned out.
  • tomatoes                     ...white on the inside
  • green beans                 ...when the animals didn't eat them
  • pea pods                     ...few and far between
  • hot peppers                 ...fabulous!
  • asparagus                    ...where oh where was it?
  • cucumbers                  ...not so great.  Some were yellow.
  • carrots                        ...never got any really big ones
  • radishes                      ...a little red colored root was it
  • Green pepper             ...one
  • pumpkins                    ...nada...none
  • brocolli                       ...now you see it, now you don't.
          • Opossum got to it! 
So, I think I covered it all!  That about sums it up.  Oh and I tried to plant some annuals by seed...NOTHING!  They were petunias and not one came up.  Uhg!  Help!

Please leave your comments if you have any ideas to help me.  :)

  1. Hi Christine! I had to comment on this post because my husband and I planted a mini vegetable garden yesterday... and my dog just caught a opossum in it!

    Thank you for taking a look at my blog. You are so sweet!
