Home Gardening

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!
