City living is not exactly helpful for developing a green thumb, so Rich and I have had many failed attempts at home gardening. Both of my parents are avid gardeners, so every summer their back yard is filled with flowers, fruit and vegetables. I know it takes a lot of work and care, but they make it look so easy! I purchased a Meyer lemon tree with the hope that I would never have to purchase a lemon again. Unfortunately my lemon tree turned out to be a lemon, blooming once then withering away! Then there were the several other plants that went careening off our balcony one windy day. I'm giving it another shot this summer with herbs. I picked basil and thyme since they are so versatile and they smell amazing. My little plants are actually doing pretty well so far. So convenient for a deliciously fresh addition to any dish!
