Growing-up, I always hated the units in Science where I had to grow something. The teacher would pass around a bunch of seeds, all the other kids would get so excited about filling-up their make-shift planters (typically an old egg carton) with dirt, planting their seeds, tending to their crop of beans, and reaping the bounty of their hard work.
Without fail … I would grow dust. No beans. No peas. No flowers. Nothing.
I hated that unit.
I’m not sure what color is opposite green, but that’s the color of my thumb — anti-green.
It’s ironic too, growing-up in Kansas, learning how to drive a combine before driving a car, surrounded by the nation’s breadbasket — and I can’t grow a plant to save my life.
Topher can cultivate. He’s great at it. Gardens. Flowers. Trees. Grass. I leave everything outside of the house (past the front porch) to him.
As I continue to strive for a healthier lifestyle, I’m finding more and more information about the benefits of growing your own herbs and vegetables. Now, I could go ahead and let Topher tackle it again, but I think this year I’m going to try something different.
When I heard about one of MiracleGro’s newest products, Gro-ables, it peaked my interest. Basically, they do all the hard work by prepackaging a variety of herbs and vegetables into pods that are pretty much bulletproof.
So here’s the plan. I’m going to take you guys along with me on my Gro-ables gardening journey. I’ll probably bore you with my garden’s baby pictures as things (hopefully) develop into a flourishing harvest!
I’m going to have to get some overalls and a red bandana…
If all goes well, the Gro-ables I’m planting should all roll into THIS RECIPE for their final destination.
