Have you ever heard of people who have a “Green Thumb”?
That means they are good when it comes to plants, gardens, those types of things.
That bypassed me so bad…
I’ve killed Cactus… I’ve killed Bamboo, anything “easy” to keep alive… yeah I wasn’t born to keep it alive apparently. That’s why in high school Ag classes and in college classes for my Ag degree I stayed more with the animals. I can keep them alive 🙂
Well, last year PC (then my fiance PC) and I wanted to plant a garden, but with trying to plan a wedding and buying our first house and getting it ready to move into and everything, we just didn’t have enough time. In fact, we have a cherry tree that we lost a lot of cherries to the birds :(… and apple trees that rotted toward the end and pear trees that toward the end got away from us. Those latter two ripened about the time we got married/went on our honeymoon.
But this year, we’re bound and determined to not only have those fruit trees, but we’ve gone an extra step and planted a garden… WISH. US. LUCK.
Next up… learning to can everything we grow, provided we don’t kill it first. haha!
We got a canner as a wedding present and over the weekend bought all the small supplies needed (ie the jar picker upper thingy, the magnetic lid picker-upper, the funnel… like my technical terms??) Now once we start reaping our benefits… if we do… We’ll get to spend a lot of time with my grandma learning how to can it all. I’m super excited!
btw… if you have an iPhone or an iPod with a camera… Oh My Gosh, you need to get the app Instagram… that’s how all the first photos were taken (well you can tell which ones). It’s so much fun and addicting. While the husband was tilling, I was shooting photos… LOL.
And one more word of advice… Wear Sunscreen!
